Sagging floors. Warped ceilings. Cracks in the molding, brick and concrete. They’re all warning signs of a crumbling foundation. Thankfully, APS is on call to stop cracks in their tracks. Our foundation repair professionals can assess any damage and develop a plan to put you and your family back on solid ground. More than one quarter of all homes in America rest on expansive soils, which are prone to damage your home’s foundation over time. APS experts have an extensive range of tools to turn failing foundations around, including an array of Chance™-brand helical piers, tiebacks and anchors. These helical applications offset the load a foundation bears, shouldering the burdens your home’s original infrastructure no longer can. Additionally, APS is equipped to implement cost effective, non-obtrusive carbon fiber grids that are strong enough to halt structural damage due to soil pressure.
Foundation troubles aren’t just an issue for homeowners. Any building constructed on unstable soil or with inherent design issues is susceptible to the telltale symptoms of settlement. Don’t let your business be one of them! Call APS for a customized diagnosis of your structural problems. Your property’s integrity shouldn’t be relegated to wait-and-see status. Reach out now!

CHANCE helical piles are an American-made deep foundation system. A central shaft transfers structural load to the soil via helical bearing plates. All components of the helical pile are made with high quality mill traceable steel. Helical piles can be applied in places traditional deep foundation technologies can’t be, including areas with low headroom, limited access, and areas with high water tables. CHANCE helical piles leverage the loadbearing capacity of stable subsoil strata, hydraulically shifting the weight of your home to these minimally invasive steel helices and brackets. APS offers CHANCE piles in the Square Shaft (SS) and Round Shaft (RS) series. The SS series is available in 1 ¼-inch and 2 ¼-inch sizes. The RS series is available in 2 ⅞-inch and 4 ½-inch sizes. An SS-RS combination is also available for specialized soil conditions. Segments or sections are joined with bolted couplings. Installation depth is limited only by soil density and economic practicality. A helical bearing plate or helix is one pitch of a screw thread. All helices, regardless of their diameter, have a standard 3-inch pitch. Being a true helical shape, the helices do not auger into the soil.
Rather, they screw into the earth with minimal soil disturbance. Helical plates are spaced at distances far enough apart that they function independently as individual bearing elements; consequently, the capacity of a particular helix on a helical anchor/pile shaft is not influenced by the helix above or below it.
CHANCE Helical Piles can also be used in tandem with Atlas Resistance Piers to increase structural support. For exterior remediation, underpinning brackets offer support the load of the structure and transfer that to the anchoring system.
CHANCE footing brackets effectively bond your existing foundation wall with loadbearing helical piles. Each hot dip galvanized bracket is designed to maximize mechanical strength, and each meets the high CHANCE-brand standards. APS offers the following bracket profiles with corresponding strength ratings for use in select applications:
Avoid common construction problems like spoils removal, de-watering, and grout cure time with temporary or permanent barriers supported by CHANCE-brand helical tieback anchors. Hot-dip galvanization provides superior corrosion protection to help ensure load-bearing tiebacks resist aggressive soils and high water tables.
CHANCE uses only high quality new, mill traceable steel, meaning you can have confidence in your sheet pile wall, bulkhead, concrete reinforced wall, precast concrete panel wall, or multi-tier tieback wall. Easy installation and no waiting for materials to cure make CHANCE products ideal for your residential or commercial construction.
APS can help develop a custom plan for your project today.
Helical piles aren’t just a solution for existing foundations. True helix geometry is also perfect for use in new construction in areas with expansive soils, high water tables, fill areas, and more. Piles for new construction are specially designed for their role in your structure and are made from the same high quality mill traceable steel as other CHANCE products. New construction caps enable embedment of CHANCE piles in cast-in-place concrete foundations. APS offers CHANCE piles in the Square Shaft (SS) and Round Shaft (RS) series. The SS series is available in 1 ¼-inch and 2 ¼- inch sizes. The RS series is available in 2 ???? ???? -inch and 4 ½-inch sizes. An SS-RS pile series is also available for specialized soil conditions.
