Helical Anchors for Foundation Repairs in Atlanta, Georgia
If you have a settling or sinking foundation, helical anchors are your best option. These underpinning devices are screwed deep into the ground beneath the slab, until they reach load bearing soils. Next, the weight of the structure is transferred onto the anchors. Once this is done, the anchors can be used to lift the foundation to the proper level. This helps return the foundation to the proper position, closing cracks that may have formed and stabilizing the foundation in the process.
Helical anchors are a reliable foundation repair solution for situations where tension resistance and axial compression forces are required. This is especially useful in stabilizing and repairing the foundations of commercial metal buildings. Because they are installed with hydraulic motors, helical anchors can be installed easily and quickly, returning the foundation to normal in no time.
