An experienced Acculevel project manager will arrive at the property and perform a full inspection of any of the reported symptoms. Measurements, drawings and other details such as photographs may be taken. A contract outlining the proposed work will be provided.
Helical piers require some large equipment that is capable of applying enough pressure on the pier to pierce the ground. Precise monitoring equipment is also brought along to make sure any adjustments are done with precision.
Since helical tie-backs are installed to provide lateral support, a hole in the foundation wall is made for access during installation of the pier. The hole created is usually small so that it can be easily covered.
While being constantly monitored, the piers are driven into the ground using special equipment. Once a desired PSI and depth is reached, a bracket and plate are attached to the pier which secures the entire installation.
If you think you may need Tie Backs, it is possible you are experiencing some or all of the following symptoms. If you are not, these symptoms may appear over time if left untreated. It is not uncommon that a homeowner is requiring several services at once and may have symptoms that are inconsistent with the following graphic.
Cracked Interior Walls
Cracked Foundation Walls
