Helical Anchors / Wall Tie Backs
Helical anchors are commonly used in the repair of both retaining walls and basement walls, transferring tension loads from the existing foundation to a soil suitable for the load.
Helical anchors provide lateral stability to foundation walls and retaining walls. Helical anchors can be installed with hand held equipment, so they can be installed in almost any application.
This versatility, along with the ability to immediately load and test the anchors (UNLIKE A CONCRETE DEADMAN, OR I-BEAM) make helical anchors a convenient and economical solution for a wide variety of projects.

- Helical is then screwed from the interior of the home at 15-20 degree angle out 15-20ft into load bearing soil.
- Interior 12” x 18” load bearing steel plate is installed and holes are sealed and waterproofed, and backfilled.
