Raleigh Retaining Wall Repair
Retaining walls are designed to contain the movement of soil and substrate that is caused by erosion and gravity. When a retaining wall begins to fail, these materials are no longer held back appropriately. Your retaining walls will begin to tilt and separate from their adjoining walls. Buckling, crumbling, cracking, and rotting wood are also signs that a retaining wall is beginning to fail.
To address the root cause of your failing retaining wall and provide a permanent fix that will restore its integrity, get in touch with Regional Foundation & Crawl Space Repair. We have several options available for retaining wall repair in Raleigh, including tieback anchors. The installation of a wall anchor system or helical tieback system provides the support your retaining wall needs to stand strong for the long haul.
The following are all terms used interchangeably to refer to systems that use helical piles:
- Helical piles
- Screw piles
- Helical piers
- Helical anchors
- Helix piers
- Helix anchors
“Piers” is used when helical piles are loaded into axial compression and “anchor” is used when helical piles are used in axial tension. Helical piles are steel supports consisting of a central shaft and helix-shaped bearing plates that are welded to a lead section. Each pile has an extension shaft that helps the pile reach stronger supporting soil for the desired capacity and depth. The pile is secured to the structure with brackets, making helical piles ideal for both new construction projects and retrofit applications.
