Why Do We Work So Hard?

How a bad contractor experience inspired us to change the industry

Finding a Good Contractor Shouldn’t Suck

In spring of 2011, a guy named Stan Higgins wanted to build a deck. He assumed, like most Winnipeggers, that concrete was the only foundation to build a deck on. However, he found out that getting a foundation was easier said than done. Of all the contractors he called, only two answered their phones. The rest never returned his calls. Frustrated, Stan looked for a different foundation. That’s when he discovered Postech Screw Piles, based in Quebec. Screw piles were an easy, fast, reliable foundation that held up like nothing else in our brutal winter weather. Unfortunately, screw pile foundations were virtually unknown in Winnipeg. People were being deprived of a foundation that was, in some cases, better than traditional foundations. Stan thought it was crazy to not have this foundation in Manitoba. So, he did something about it. He quit his day job, founded VersaPile, Inc. – Helical Pile Contractors and started to offer the Postech Screw Piles brand. Seven years later, VersaPile, Inc. – Helical Pile Contractors has installed tens of thousands of helical piles for people just like you across Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Kenora.

We are still offering Postech Screw Piles among other CCMC certified brands of helical piles.  We leverage our local expertise to design, source and install the best helical pile solution to satisfy your unique project needs.  

In 2011, we started with decks but today apartment blocks, strip malls, community recreation centres, communications towers, grain silos, and other significantly sized projects in Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba are well supported on helical piles installed by VersaPile, Inc.  

From 100 lbs to 130,000 lbs capacity helical piles, VersaPile has the local experience and technical expertise to assist you with nearly any project.

“From their arrival until they left, your work crew did you proud. I couldn’t believe how quiet the drilling
machine was and the team left the site in perfect condition. I was able to start my deck immediately and
it looks fantastic. Thanks for a great job!”
Peter Young, Winnipeg
