How Helical Anchors Work
Helical anchors can be installed the same day, and they provide immediate results. The anchors are installed by drilling them into the stable ground layer beneath the surface using rotary drilling equipment. The installer then figures the capacity by reading the installation torque and comparing it to the holding capacity ratio. Up to 55,000 pound capacity per anchor can be obtained using the CHANCE Anchoring System. Benefits of using this type of basement wall repair include:
- No need to evacuate the premises
- Results can be seen immediately
- No need to wait for concrete to cure as with other types of foundation repair and replacement
- Less costly than many other forms of basement repair
- The CHANCE System is backed by a transferrable warranty
