Helical Tiebacks

Helical Tiebacks

Helical tiebacks are used to lock in place walls which are falling or bowing inward. After excavating around the troubled wall, the shaft is driven into the ground at a slight angle. A hole is then made in the foundation wall and a pole is anchored inside the building and to the helical shaft in the ground.

The head of the tiebacks resemble a screw...this is the part that is driven into the ground.
Once the shafts are driven into the ground, the holes around them are filled with urethane. This will keep water from finding its way in to your basement through those holes. The number of helicals needed will depend on the length of the moving wall, they should be placed 6 feet apart for poured concrete walls and 4 feet apart for cinderblock.
Once installed, your wall will be sporting several of these plates on the inside.
Once the job is completed you can't even the helicals are there from the outside. While this wall was exposed we also did some exterior waterproofing which you can see anchored by that metal strip under the siding. Window wells with covers completed the job for this home.
