Helical Tieback Repair from Bay Area Underpinning
Have you noticed foundation cracks in your basement walls or foundation footings? If you have noticed foundation cracks or leaning and bowing foundation walls, it may be time to invest in repair services from the experts at Bay Area Underpinning. We offer several different foundation repair products from ECP (Earth Contact Products), but one that is particularly useful for foundation shifting is helical tiebacks. These devices are designed to pull the foundation back to the correct position to reverse any shifting and help close foundation cracks that may have formed in your San Francisco or Oakland, CA home.
What are helical tiebacks and how do they work? These anchoring devices are installed underground adjacent to your bowing or leaning foundation wall. First, the area around the wall is excavated. Next, holes are drilled through the foundation wall. The anchors are installed horizontally through these holes and anchored into the ground next to the foundation. The anchors pull the wall back into place using the resistance of the soil. As a final step, the entire area is backfilled and the interior and exterior are cleaned up. This process is relatively quick – it can be completed in a day – and will hold the foundation wall in place for years to come. The excavation allows the wall to be straightened immediately.
