Re: Strengthening soils under existing footing?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Irv,

Long story short my advice is if you use the helical piers have money set
aside to provide quality control by someone from your office. Once these
things are in the ground there's no way to know how many plates were
installed or how deep they went. Also, in the specifications require that
the installer provide an inline torque meter (manufactured by chance) that
gives verifiable results as to actual installation torque (which is directly
related to bearing potential). Relying on pressure gage readings on the
installation machines hydraulics will give questionable results.

HTH,

Rand
