The wall anchors we use are cost effective and can be installed with little impact to your home.
Bowing walls are a frequently seen issue that are caused when there is what is known as hydrostatic pressure that pushes on the outside of foundation walls. This pressure is created whenever the soil expands due to moisture from a heavy rain, or when there is melting snow in the springtime. The pressure can also be caused when soil is too dry and compacts, which pushes on the walls.
Bowed Wall Repair
We can provide expert bowed wall repair services to address your buckled basement wall problems, which can help get your home back to the way it was. It is important to have this problem taken care of when you begin to see it happening. Failure to do so could result in the wall actually failing and falling into your home. This issue effects the structural integrity of your entire home. To solve the bowing wall problem, we can install wall anchors and wall plates or ultra strong carbon fiber straps if necessary.
Bowed Wall Solution: Wall Anchors
Bowed walls can be repaired with wall anchors coated with a galvanizing agent to prevent deterioration of the materials. These anchors are made from strong, durable materials. They can straighten most walls over time without the need for any kind of excavation.
Wall Anchors can be installed with minimal disturbance to your existing landscaping, driveway, sidewalks, porch, patio, etc. They have a low-profile wall plate that can easily be painted over or finished over, as well. This means that it will blend in well with the rest of your basement environment.
The wall anchor works by counteracting the pressure being applied on the wall from the hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding the home. This patented product can only be installed by qualified installers.
