What Are Soil Nails? 

Your commercial structure needs to be built strong and durable in order to stand the test of time. During construction, soil nailing is a method of earth retention that provides extra support in the soil where your structure is being built. This method is typically used in areas where landslides or soil slope failure might be an issue.

Soil Nails are used for:

  • Supporting excavation sites
  • Stabilizing slopes in the soil
  • Stabilizing embankments
  • Repairing retaining walls
  • Preventing landslides and avalanches in high-risk areas

How Do Soil Nails Work?

Our Louisville soil nailing service provides more strength and stability to the soil by increasing the load capacity where your structure is being built. Soil nails are inserted into excavated soil at near horizontal angles and precise distances from one another. These nails are inserted in layers, and the layers of nails create a system that works together to stabilize the soil. This helps prevent any natural soil slopes that could potentially cause uneven support and hazardous situations for your building. Our Louisville retaining wall repair staff is able to deploy this method to create a stable, gravity-retaining system.
