Helical Tiebacks Anchors

Secure and Strengthen Your Home Foundation

Providing reliable, lasting solutions to your foundation issues. Helical tiebacks are a revolutionary method for securing the structural integrity of your property, and addressing the root cause of foundation instability.

What Are Helical Tiebacks?

Helical tiebacks are long, helix-shaped steel plates installed at a downward angle into the ground alongside the affected foundation to straighten, provide stability, and prevent further shifting or movement. They work by transferring the structure’s weight from unstable soil onto themselves. They act as anchor counterforce, effectively resisting the lateral pressures that can cause foundation wall damage.


Over time, foundations can become compromised due to soil erosion, water damage, shifting earth, or other structural issues. So when your home starts showing signs of instability, such as bowing walls, settlement, or severe types of foundation cracks in the wall, helical tiebacks can provide the reinforcement needed to secure your property. 

At LUX, we use a Helical Tieback System engineered for reliability. They provide an environmentally friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional foundation repair methods. With minimal disturbance to the surrounding property and no excavation required, they’re also a preventative measure to strengthen your home’s stability and give you peace of mind, knowing that your property is protected against future foundation issues.

Are Helical Tiebacks Necessary?

Helical tiebacks are essential in foundation repair strategies. They function as a fundamental line of defense against the forces that can undermine your foundation’s integrity. The reasons for their importance include:


  • Restoring structural integrity: Helical tiebacks provide additional support and load-bearing capacity to compromised foundations, helping to ensure your home’s long-term stability.
  • Preventing further damage: The helical tieback system can help prevent further soil shifting or movement and damage by addressing the underlying issues affecting your foundation and stabilizing the structure. And reduce the potential for costly damage in the future. 
  • Increasing property value: An unstable foundation can negatively impact the value of your property. Helical tiebacks, on the other hand, can help restore and even increase that value by preserving the home’s integrity while having peace of mind.

Helical tiebacks are more than just a temporary fix – they are a future-proof solution to ensure your property stands strong for years to come.

Signs Your Foundation Need Helical Tiebacks Installation

Identifying the early warning signs of foundation instability can save your property from significant damage and potential repair costs. Here are key indicators:

If you observe any of these signs, it’s essential to contact LUX, your local foundation repair expert, to determine whether Helical tiebacks are the right solution for your home.

LUX Helical Tiebacks Installation Process

Our helical tieback installation follows a meticulous, step-by-step approach to ensure maximum efficacy and lasting results.

1. Site Assessment

Our professional team will assess your damaged foundation wall, determine the placement of tiebacks, and identify the location of underground utilities. This critical process ensures that the installation proceeds efficiently, safely, and with minimal disturbance to your property.

2. Drilling Holes into the Foundation Wall

Small holes are carefully drilled into the affected walls of your foundation, allowing for the precise installation of helical anchors into the soil. This process guarantees the tiebacks are securely attached and provide optimal support to your home’s foundation.

3. Installing the Helical Screws

Our experts select the appropriate size of helical screws, taking into account the soil conditions and anchors required. The helical is then driven into the holes at a downward angle until it reaches a stable load-bearing soil, ensuring the tieback delivers the necessary support and stability to your home.


4. Extension Rods

Upon reaching the load-bearing soil, extension rods are connected to the helical screw piles. These rods facilitate reaching the appropriate depth and optimizing the tiebacks’ effectiveness in supporting your home’s foundation.

5. Cement Filling

The final step involves filling the cement around the crew piles in the drilled holes. This process seals the area around the helicals, protecting them from environmental elements and further strengthening the tieback system.

6. Installing interior plate brackets and tightening them to straighten the wall

Finally, we install interior plates and tighten them as needed, ensuring that your walls are straightened and reinforced.
