What to Know About Helical Anchors for Foundation Repair Southwest Marietta, GA

A strong foundation is vital for the durability of your home structure. Over time, shifting soil or corrosion can cause your foundation to crack or warp. Helical anchors can help secure the foundation to prevent and fix damage. Here is everything you need to know about helical anchors for foundation repair.

What are Helical Anchors?

Helical anchors are high strength steel screws used to secure the foundation deep into the ground. These screws can come in varying sizes and shapes and are generally installed in a grid-shaped pattern. This solution is ideal for areas where the soil is unstable to provide adequate support for the weight of the building.

How the Installation Process for Helical Anchors Works

The installation process can be quick, depending on the size and condition of your home and the amount of required depth. Helical anchors are typically installed prior to a laid foundation. These anchors can be used after construction for foundation repairs. In this case, the foundation is exposed by removing the ground around the repair site. The anchors are then drilled deeply into the ground at an angle.

A bracket may be added to provide security and hydraulics pressurize the anchors while lifting the foundation. A pipe may be fastened with bolts to the bracket to connect the anchors to the foundation. The foundation is then lowered to complete the repair process.

Does Your Home Need Helical Anchors?

If you notice signs of moving or shifting with your foundation, helical anchors can be an ideal solution. Any cracks along your walls or basement will need to be repaired before these anchors are installed. Steel push piers may be more beneficial for multi-level homes, as these can sustain a heavier weight than helical anchors. The best way to determine if helical anchors are right for your home is to speak with a foundation repair specialist.

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.
