If you have a construction project underway and want a simple solution for the foundation without having to dig or build a foundation, you should invest in building with a ground screw. Building without casting is advantageous from both an economic and time point of view. It is especially advantageous to build with a ground screw because you can start building immediately after installation and that Sluta Gräv’s competent fitters install them for you.
What can I build with a ground screw?
A ground screw can be used for both rebuilding and when you are building a new one. Whether you want to build a new holiday home, conservatory or a carport, ground screw is an optimal choice because it is a fast and flexible foundation. It also works to install the ground screw in hard ground where it can be difficult to dig down concrete plinths. Expanding without digging is time-saving, but if you instead hire a construction company, every hour costs you have to wait to be able to build on a foundation. A plinth must be dug down to a frost-free depth to last a long time, which is both heavy and stressful, and time-consuming.
Build a balcony or conservatory
A terrace or a conservatory is a pleasant place in the garden and in order for you to enjoy it for a long time, it is important to choose the right foundation. Our ground screws are stainless, can withstand cold as well as heat and can be installed all year round. If you start your patio construction already in the winter when it is frost, you are guaranteed to have time to finish in the summer because our ground screws can be installed even when the ground is frost. They are carefully tested for tensile, pressure and load.
A terrace needs to be anchored in the ground at approximately one and a half meter intervals in all directions to hold well, which is easily arranged with a ground screw. There are ground screws in a number of different variants such as adapter screw, pipe screw, beam screw and post screw and they are also available in many lengths to handle all the work. Building yourself has never been easier because you can start construction immediately after the assembly is completed.
Put up a fence
With a post screw you can build a new fence without casting or digging and our post screws are available in several dimensions to suit everyone’s needs. Fasteners and dimensions follow the Swedish building standard to make it easier to build yourself. The post screws for the fence should be spaced 1.8 meters apart in order for your fence to be stable and durable. A major advantage of building a fence with a ground screw is that the screws can be picked up and reused.
Build a store
We all probably know how important it is with storage and with your own storage on the plot, you can easily and safely store your garden tools, bicycles and other things that you want to stow away.
