SOIL NAILING

SOIL NAILING

GIVE US A CALL TODAY FOR YOUR ESTIMATE

When you nail soil, you make it stronger and more stable. To do it, you will position rods of steel and hammer them down into the soil. This is what gives the technique its name. It makes the ground more resilient to slope collapses and is quicker to implement than other alternatives.

First of all, a hole will be made in the exact place where the bar of steel will be inserted. After that, a specialist will need to calculate how deep the bar needs to go and provide that information to the workers. The result is comparable to gravity walls, which are kept upright solely by gravity. In this case, the steel rods maintain the hillside and ensure stability.

SOIL NAILING

Here at Seattle Foundation Repairs, soil nailing is completed using high-quality nails designed by Earth Contact Products. Each nail from ECP has precise measurements that allow them to be used very precisely. Length is 5 to 7 inches, strength is 70,000 to 100,000 pounds, and each one is solid.

USING SOIL NAILING TO FIX FOUNDATIONS

If the soil around your foundations is unstable, then they will be unstable as well. Without secure soil, you cannot have secure foundations.

Seattle Foundation Repairs are the experts when it comes to soil nailing. When they install them, a particular pattern is followed. Each nail will have an equal distance between it and the others. When digging, the process has to be done in stages. These stages depend on how deep the nails have to go. A single stage is up to 6 feet in depth. After all this has been done, the exposed wall of soil is covered in a coating that’s been reinforced with steel.

Once in place, the nails will rest in their locations and act as structural support for the soil. The combination of sliding soil to the rear of the slip plane and stable soil in front of it gives the nails resistance against being pulled out. The result of the nails is to make the soil rigid. You can refer to Figure 4 for an illustration of what the installation process looks like.

Every individual nail has what are called helical plates. They are found along the shaft and add even more stability and resistance to movement. Tieback anchors have fewer of these.

If your foundations are unstable, and you believe that there could be a problem with soil that’s causing it, then the answer is to get in touch with Seattle Foundation Repairs. They use some of the most effective products in the industry as a result of sourcing their equipment from ECP. You can contact Seattle Foundation Repairs today to find out more!
