The same kind of helical tiebacks that are used to straighten basement walls can be used to pull leaning seawalls back into place. These tiebacks are an effective solution that is popular among contractors due to their high strength and ease of installation and measurement. They are also durable in many different weather conditions and can be installed in nearly any location due to their lightweight and portable design. We use ECP helical tiebacks since they are of high quality and can withstand harsh Florida weather.
Helical tiebacks for seawalls are installed using limited excavation and a drill through one side of the seawall. Once the seawall has been installed it pulls the leaning or bowing seawall straight to prevent structural problems and close cracks. The excavated area is then filled in and the seawall is left good as new.
Though helical anchors are a great choice no matter what your foundation repair needs, they are an obvious choice when it comes to seawall or lake wall repair. No matter if you are building a new seawall or fixing an existing one, helical anchors will be there to keep the wall solid. Helical anchors are a much better choice than concrete deadmen and can be used where deadmen aren’t doing their job.
There are multiple advantages when using helical piers as seawall anchors. First off, they are cost-effective. When it comes to installation, they are both quick and flexible. They are installed quickly and tensioned immediately. Their length and bearing can be adjusted on the job. They can also be installed at an angle to avoid things like pools and building foundations. They can be installed both on the land or seaside, and cause little disruption to yards, gardens, and the like.
Because they are quick and relatively easy to install, helical seawall anchors cut labor and equipment costs. They require no excavation, and you don’t have to wait for any concrete to cure. They can be installed in any type of weather, and in limited areas. They are removable and extendable and can be used for both permanent and temporary applications. They load in bearing and in non-friction environments. Helical seawall anchors require no casing.
