In our last tip of the day, Brian talks about round shaft Helical Anchor.

The round shaft has a wider diameter than most of the square shafts, we typically use the round shaft anchors for vertical loading and underpinning. The wider cross-section of the helical provides better structural capacity where large movement or buckling can be present. So if we are going straight into the ground these are the types of helical piers we will most likely be using. The advantage of the round shaft is it is more ideal to use when softer soils are present and there is a potential for high lateral loads. However; the disadvantage is that the larger shaft can be more difficult to penetrate very dense or rocky soils. So our specialists are trained as to which the helical pier system is best suited for each project. Give Dalinghaus Construction a call today for your free in-home inspection.
