Residential Foundation Repair
Stopping the damaging effects of foundation settling, sinking foundations, cracked and buckled walls, and uneven floors are problems commonly faced by some quarter-million homeowners.
Homes and other structures situated on unstable soils settle when their foundations are subjected to extreme moisture conditions, or when they lack proper drainage. A shifting foundation may result in structural damage to your home and a loss of your investment.
Indications of foundation settling problems include:
Foundation walls that are buckled or bowed
Doors and windows that stick or don’t open properly
Cracks in foundation walls
Cracks in exterior walls
Cracks in interior walls and ceilings
Sunken or buckled interior concrete floors
There are many resources available for engineers. SAS will help you to find what tools we can provide to assist you. SAS also offers a variety of education seminars that will provide you with a working knowledge of the latest development in steel foundation technology.
Many resources are available for engineers, including cut sheets, material and installation specs, and drawings. For any of these resources, please call 763-428-2368 or email us. Access Technical Resources on Chance® website at http://www.abchance.com
Several times throughout the year, Structural Anchor Supply hosts informative and technical seminars regarding the Chance® Civil Construction Foundation System and Foundation Anchoring Technologies. Conferences are complimentary for engineers and design professionals and PDH credits are available to those attend.
A.B. Chance®, the pioneer and leader in power installed anchor foundation technology, introduced the new Helicap® Engineering software in 2001. This user friendly software enables the engineer to calculate theoretical tension and compression capacities for A.B. Chance® helical anchor products. By entering the soil profile the engineer is able to quickly calculate the capacity of various anchor configurations. If you are interested in this new innovative software, please call our office at 763-428-2368 or email us to request your copy today. HeliCAP Request HeliCAP™
Lunch and Learn
We would be glad to conduct a lunch-n-learn to inform your office about Chance® Helical products. This is a great way to keep educated and up to date with the many Helical Pile applications. Please call 763-428-2368 or email us.
About Helical Piles, Piers, Soil Nails, Tiebacks, and Anchors
Chance® Helical Anchors are capable of supporting load in both tension and compression. This allows almost unlimited applications where helical anchors can be used to provide economically beneficial solutions. Within Structural Anchor Supply’s and Chance’s® websites you will find a multitude of ways that helical anchors can be utilized to solve specific load support situations.
Compression Load Applications
In compression load applications helical anchors are commonly used to prevent or correct settlement for new and existing structures with poor soil conditions (soil conditions not suitable for structural support). Other applications include boardwalks, crane and equipment pads, utilities, and communication towers.
Tension Load Applications
In tension load applications, such as buoyancy or lateral pressure (horizontal movement), helical anchors are used in earth retention systems such as retaining walls by installing them as tiebacks or soil nails. Other applications include guy wire supports for utilities and as buoyancy compensators for pipelines.
