What Are Helical Tiebacks?, Pond Creek, Kentucky

No matter how well you keep your home, if the foundation begins to fail, it will lead to disaster. The staff at Dwyer Company advises for the concrete repair to be performed immediately, and helical tiebacks are their suggested solution. This highly effective anchor system is perfect for reestablishing support in concrete foundations and other concrete structures, providing a lasting fix that ensures long-term protection.

What Are Helical Tiebacks?

concrete-repair-dwyer-companyOver time, concrete walls, such as in-home foundations or perimeter fences, will begin to bow or lean when they suffer too much pressure. Eventually, they will break and fold. Helical tiebacks are the best form of concrete repair in this situation. These long, screw-like anchors, which are usually made of galvanized steel, are designed to hold their position in soil while providing support and are pushed into the ground next to the leaning wall. Then, they generate pressure that works against the force pushing the wall over to reestablish balance.

What Are the Benefits?

Because soil is constantly shifting, you need a support system to adjust to these conditions. Helical tiebacks are perfect for the job because they’re highly flexible and will change as needed. Because they’re “screwed” into place, they also help to minimize drastic soil shifting. 

Unlike many other concrete repair treatments, helical tiebacks are extremely easy to install. They require no excavation or heavy machinery for travel or installation, and a small team can perform the installation. They can also be installed in tight areas, meaning heavy demolition and reconstruction costs aren’t needed. Most importantly, you get a long-term support system to keep your home foundation and other concrete structures safe against pressure over time.
