Helical anchors and underpinning brackets can save homes and buildings from damage as their foundations sink and shift. Bad things tend to happen when foundations settle in unstable soil; walls may crack, doorways can warp and floors may become uneven. As these things happen, moisture is more likely to penetrate through gaps, potentially causing mold growths and other problems. That’s why it’s so important to not only repair sagging foundations, but to do so as quickly as possible.
Patriot Foundation Systems can help. The Florida-based company is a leading provider of underpinning brackets and helical pile foundation system products. Helical foundation reinforcement systems use helical pilings, also known as helical anchors or screw anchors, to anchor underpinning brackets to bedrock or more stable soil deep underground. These underpinning brackets attach to your foundation and adjust to make your foundation level.
Why use a helical pile foundation system? Consider these benefits:
Want another reason to use a helical pile foundation system? Helical systems are environmentally-friendly because they can be installed without concrete or the removal of soil. The result is less waste to haul away and a smaller carbon footprint. Helical anchors can easily be extracted and removed, and they’re easier to install in hard-to-reach areas. When used in marine construction projects, helical anchors won’t disturb underwater ecosystems. These foundation systems offer similar green benefits in many residential, commercial and industrial applications.
