Foundation Wall Anchors

A home is usually the biggest investment a person or family makes – not to mention the value of the possessions contained within it. A cave-in can cause irreparable damage to the house and contents. So it’s important to secure, stabilize and correct deteriorating basement walls before it’s too late.

Bowed, cracked or leaning basement walls are a sign that something is going very wrong with the structural integrity of your property. This issue happens for a couple of reasons:

  1. Pressure from too much water building up against the walls or
  2. Soil that is around your property swells and exerts pressure that forces the foundation wall inward

In the past homeowners had few choices for repairing foundation walls, except to excavate around the wall or build a new basement wall. This solution is expensive, time consuming, and destructive to landscaping. Not only that, the problem can recur if the wall is not properly rebuilt or if steps are not taken to correct the causes of the initial deterioration.

Our Wall Anchor Solution

We proudly use wall anchors manufactured by Grip-Tite Manufacturing Company. For more than 95 years, they have been the world’s leading authority in earth anchoring technology. They earned that title by providing a permanent and affordable solution to settling foundations. Their piers comply with international building codes and have been independently tested for strength and durability.

Wall Anchors

Our Wall Anchor solutions utilizes proven engineering methods to secure and stabilize deteriorating basement walls. What’s more, they work on any kind of basement wall – concrete block, clay block, poured concrete, timber, or stone. The solution consists of an interior galvanized steel wall plate, an exterior galvanized steel soil anchor, commonly referred to as a “deadman anchor,” and a connecting steel rod. The wall anchors stabilize foundation walls by counteracting pressure exerted against the wall.

Wall Anchors are an alternative to completely removing and rebuilding basement walls that have become cracked, leaning or bowed as a result of pressures exceeding the allowable design capacity of the wall.

Wall Anchors

Installing our Wall Anchor solution usually takes less than one day, and the installation crew will leave your home and lawn with minimal disturbance. Anchors are placed in specific locations along the wall, and rod extenders can be added to avoid all decking, cement work, flower beds, and other landscaping. And because the system works with the wall and ground, structural changes to your house are unnecessary.

Whether the cracking or bowing is caused by inadequate drainage, improper construction practices, expansive soil or another problem, don’t risk the investment in your home by failing to address the issue.

Advantages of our Wall Anchors:

  • Minimal excavation or disturbance to property, lawn or landscaping
  • Installed in a day or less
  • No wait – can be installed year-round
  • Easily installed in areas with decks, landscaping or flowerbeds
  • Cost-effective – less cost than re-building foundation wall(s)
