We will visit your home or commercial building
to inspect the foundation, determine the installation requirements,
and prepare an installation design. The design analysis will
account for the size, position, and load of each anchor.
After developing the installation guide we will be able to
offer a price quote and time estimate.
If you choose to proceed with the installation we will first
excavate to the the footing at each anchor location. A notch
will be chipped out of the footing to accommodate a support
bracket. A high-torque hydraulic drive head will screw the
anchors into stable subsoil. A steel L-shaped bracket placed
on top of each anchor shaft will connect to the base of the
foundation wall. The weight of the building will then be transferred
to the Helical Pier® Foundation Systems by a calculated procedure
of hydraulic jacking and adjustment of the brackets. All excavation
will then be backfilled.
