Helical Anchors for Foundation Repairs in Atlanta, Georgia
The first step in helical anchor installation is to screw the anchors into the load bearing soils deep under your foundation. Once installed, the anchors are used to support the weight of the structure while lifting the foundation to the original position. The foundation is now stabilized and supported from beneath. Helical anchors can also help close cracks in the foundation by leveling the concrete slab. Whether your foundation settled due to void formation, hydrostatic pressure, or poor soil compaction, helical anchors can provide the necessary support and lift.
For foundation repair solutions where both tension resistance and axial compression forces are needed, helical anchors are a must. These anchors are also very versatile, and can be used to lift and stabilize residential structures, pipeline and plumbing equipment, concrete slabs, and numerous other types of structures.
