Restore Structural Integrity with Helical Piers Southwest Marietta, GA

There are two types of difficult foundation problems. The first is a sinking foundation. If a building is exposed to excessive moisture, the ground around the foundation may erode, allowing the foundation to sink. Sinking foundations in Atlanta can be catastrophic to the structural integrity, appearance and value of a building.

The second situation is areas resistant to traditional foundation construction. For example, sandy soils can have their particles wash away over time, leaving gaps beneath the foundation. This leads to sinking. The solution to both problems is to restore structural integrity with helical piers.

How Do Helical Piers Work?

A helical pier looks similar to a giant steel screw. This has earned them many names, including screw piers, screw anchors and ground anchors.

They are spaced at specific intervals around the building to evenly distribute the weight of the structure. It is the helical design—the discs resembling screw threads — that spread the weight by contacting multiple points in the ground, creating a large surface area. By distributing the foundation load, the building becomes stable. They are so reliable, they are one of the best solutions for building in or near water, or when dealing with soggy soils.

At Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry Repairs, we do not risk cracking your concrete foundation by attaching the pier bracket directly to the footing. Instead, we use our proprietary connection system, which does not require a bolt.

How Do I Know If I Need Helical Piers?

Many buildings have some natural settling and may develop an occasional nail pop or squeaky floorboard. But there are some signs you should never ignore, as they may indicate more serious problems:

  • Doors and windows become increasingly harder to open and close
  • Excessive or increased cracking of interior walls
  • Nails show through drywall and ceilings
  • Uneven floors
  • Leaning chimneys
  • Cracks in foundations or interior basement walls

Only an experienced foundation contractor can tell you if your foundation needs repairs and if helical piers are the right solution. If you have any of the signs of a sinking building, call Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry Repairs in Atlanta today to find out if helical piers can restore your foundation.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
