Our helical anchor is a powerful system that gently lifts and permanently supports settled houses and other structures. It is also an excellent remedy for soil problems and can be used to create a firm foundation for new home construction. Our helical anchor is engineered to be free of the weaknesses of other foundation systems. For example, systems that use thin shaft anchors or piers are subject to “kinking,” or buckling, if the weight of the house structure exceeds the capacity of the anchors. Push pier systems which repeatedly lift a structure and use its weight to push piers into the ground can cause “walkout” and point loading during lifting, leading to additional failures. Walkout occurs when a section that is being lifted moves away from the rest of the structure.
WHY USE THE STABILIZOR SYSTEM?
Kinking often occurs with support systems that use thin shaft anchors or piers. If the weight of the house exceeds the capacity of the anchors, the shaft will buckle, or kink, and fail.
Push pier systems can also fail if soil conditions change because they use friction to support a structure’s weight. If a repair is done when soil is dry and soil conditions change, piers will slip because of the change in friction.
“Walkout” can occur with push pier systems that lift house and then use its weight to push the pier into the ground—a process that can be repeated many times and may cause a section that is being lifted to move away, or“walkout”, from the rest of the house. Our helical anchor lifts a house only when setting it back in place.
