Helical Anchors

Helical anchors are one of the two most common types of underpinning products for foundation repair applications in use today. They are an excellent choice for foundation repair and stabilization when light structural loads, unstable rock basement or very deep load-bearing layers are present.

Contact My Foundation Repair for your foundation repair needs using ECP helical anchors.

Steel Piers

ECP steel piers are an excellent choice for foundation repairs on settling foundations. Foundation settlement is caused due to several reasons such as:

  • Organic soil
  • Clay soil that shrinks and swells
  • Poor compaction
  • Improper footer embedment

Erosion

All of these situations can cause your foundation to sink and settle. The function of steel piers is to support and stabilize the structure’s load-bearing walls by transferring the weight of the structure from weaker soils onto the steel piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Then the piers are individually load tested, then the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers.

The ECP steel piers case studies will help you to further understand the application of these ECP steel piers.

Wall Anchors

ECP wall anchors are used to fix bowing or leaning wall. Walls that are bowing or leaning are a sign of foundation settlement. These wall anchors are installed by drilling a small hole onto the interior wall, then with outside excavation, the wall is pulled back to its original level.

MicroPiles

ECP micropiles are used to repair settlement on slabs and porches. The ECP micropiles are a small diameter pier drilled and grouted friction piles. Each pile includes steel elements that are bonded into the bearing soil or rock. Micropiles do not rely on end-bearing capacity, so there is no need to establish the competency of the rock beyond bond-depth. They are installed quickly with little disruption to the site. The ECP case studies will help you to understand the application of these ECP micropiles.
