What are Helical Anchors?
When looking at solutions for foundation repair, there seems to be an overwhelming amount of options. Here at Grout Tech, we offer them all, but one of the most popular solutions is the use of helical anchors. Helical anchors are screw piers, best used on slab foundations, porches, or other light-weight structures. They are used to lift or stabilize sinking foundations, or stabilize retaining walls. They stabilize and reinforce materials when they are attached and driven deeply into the soil. Grout Tech is happy to be your helical anchors Alabama provider. We install helical anchors, helical piles, and helical tiebacks.
Why Helical Anchors?
Helical anchors work on a basic principle: their capacity is proportional to the length of the torque during installation. Short piers work best for lighter loads, and long continuous lengths are for larger loads.
One of the reasons helical anchors are so popular is because they are so easy! When installing helical anchors or piers, there is little or no disturbance to the surrounding landscape, leaving your home and garden just as beautiful as before. They can be installed in all weathers, and there is an immediate load transfer upon installation.
