Question BAYO S Foundation Screws vs Pylex

Looking to build a Sun Room addition on a freestanding 10x11deck. Was planning to use Pylex 50" screws with the 24" extensions as the foundations but then found the BAYO-S or BAYO.S screws but can't find any reviews about them.

Did anyone here have used them or seen them or have any information about them to share.

on YouTube it looks like they are sold at Home Hardware but their website has no information about them.

I am in the Halton, Ontario area so foundation needs to be below the frost line.

I already contacted the source, but was looking for some hands-on experience.

BAYO.S Ground Screws vs Pylex

Hi there,

I can speak from personal experience of using BAYO.S Ground Screws. They work much like a traditional wood screw and the fine continuous thread pulls the screw into the ground when ever it is rotated. It forms a tight bond with the surrounding soil and can withstand extremely high loads. Especially lateral loads are much stronger on the BAYO.S Screws compared to Pylex.

For the deck you would only need a 24" Tip + 36" Extension and U-Bracket. If you use their One Piece Screws you can buy a 5' Screw for around 60$.

For your sunroom you would need the PRO Screws with wider pipe diameter and heavier wall gauge. If you have a certified BAYO.S Installer come out to do that foundation work for you, you are looking somewhere from
200$ + depending on soil etc.
