No matter what you are going to build, it is important to anchor it in the ground, otherwise it will not last long. We recommend that you anchor with a ground screw as it is quick and easy, while at the same time causing minimal damage to the ground.
The ground screw is an excellent anchorage that can replace concrete plinths. You thus avoid digging, casting and soldering. We at Sluta Gräv AB also take care of the installation of the ground screw for you so that you can start building immediately.
SUITABLE FOR BOTH SMALL AND LARGE PROJECTS
You can anchor with a ground screw regardless of whether it is a small or large project that is planned. If you are going to build an attefall house for storing things or as a guest house, a ground screw is perfect. Then you do not have to cast a foundation, which is both more expensive and more time-consuming. We screw down the ground screw based on your drawing so that you get a durable and affordable result.
If you are going to build a wooden deck, ground clearance will make it easier for you. Anchoring the wooden deck with our ground screws saves you excavation work while you do not have to worry about the wooden deck not being straight and plumb. If you are building a fence, you can use a ground screw to anchor the post in the ground.
ADVANTAGES OF ANCHORING WITH EARTH SCREW
Anyone who has anchored with concrete plinths has probably sighed and groaned over the excavation, especially if the ground is rocky. Having to dig up a huge rock is not part of the plan, but unfortunately something that you may have to do if you use a plinth as an anchor. The biggest advantage of ground screw is that you do not have to dig. In fact, you do not need to anchor on your own at all.
At Sluta Gräv, we have experienced fitters all over the country who come to you and take care of the anchoring. For a medium-sized wooden deck, installation only takes a few hours, and you can start building the wooden deck immediately. The ground screw does not need to settle or harden as concrete does, but is stable and ready immediately after it has been screwed in.
ANCHOR HOLIDAY HOMES
Even large buildings such as holiday homes can be anchored with the help of ground screws. Most often, the plot for your holiday home is remote and perhaps in a place with a mountainous or rocky ground, or on a clay or sandy ground. Different foundations can, for various reasons, make it difficult to dig down concrete plinths. Ground screws, on the other hand, can be used for construction on all types of ground.
The machines we use can also be accessed in remote locations in difficult terrain, which means that we can anchor for you almost anywhere. We can access even in steep and inaccessible places. Which ground screw to use depends on the type of holiday home you are going to build and on what foundation. Our fitters have extensive experience of anchoring holiday homes of various constructions. We usually use beam screws or adapter screws when it comes to holiday homes.
ANCHOR YOUR OUTDOOR ROOM WITH GROUND SCREW
Whether you choose to build a free-standing conservatory or one that is partially connected to your house, a ground screw is an optimal anchorage. You do not have to dig up your garden and if you ever want to demolish or move the conservatory, it is possible without leaving large traces behind. Ground screws are so durable that they can be reused, while the screw holes are barely visible after removal.
We choose ground screws depending on how you are going to design your conservatory. Many people build their conservatories on poles and then pillar screws are optimal, however, beam screws and adapter screws can also work when you build conservatories.
HOW DO I ANCHOR WITH GROUND SCREW FROM END OF DRAW?
You plan your construction project as usual before contacting us at Sluta Gräv. We help you find a fitter in your area who can help you with the anchoring work as soon as possible. You decide what dimensions you should have on the construction, regardless of whether it is a carport, a storage room or a pergola. Then make a drawing, either on your own or with the help of professionals.
When you are done with that planning, contact us and ask for a cost proposal and planning of your construction project. We also book a day for the installation of your ground screws.
We pre-drill holes in the ground before we unscrew the ground screws that will anchor your construction project. The pre-drilling provides the best possible attachment for the screws. Many times we use tensile tests to check the ground conditions or if it is a larger construction, such as a holiday home. Our drills can screw through asphalt, in addition, they can be assembled quickly and you can start construction immediately.
WHY SHOULD I ANCHOR WITH GROUND SCREW INSTEAD OF PLINT?
Choosing anchoring with a ground screw instead of with a concrete plinth saves you a lot of work. You do not have to dig and cast with a ground screw. In addition, you can not build on the concrete plinths directly after burial, which you can with our ground screws. Concrete plinths can only be used during spring, summer and autumn when there is no frost, while ground screws can be installed all year round.
If you care about the environment, the ground screw is also a much better alternative than the concrete plinth, because a plinth emits a larger amount of carbon dioxide. Ground screws work just like concrete plinths, although they are easier to use and last longer. You always get at least a 25-year guarantee on ground screws from us at Sluta Gräv.
You do not have to think about how long the screws should be or how tight they should fit, we will take care of that for you. It is very time-saving to anchor with a ground screw and we always take into account the type of foundation you are going to build on. This way, you can trust a safe and stable construction project no matter where you are going to build.
TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
Before you anchor your construction project, it is important that you check whether you need a building permit. For a wooden deck, conservatory or attefall house, you usually do not need a building permit, but for a holiday home or a carport, a building permit is standard. Once you have received the green light, the ground screw is optimal for you to anchor the construction project in the ground with. You should always consider anchoring with a ground screw if you want a stable anchorage, regardless of construction project.
