Bowed & Leaning Foundation Walls
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 making it 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 when hydrostatic pressure from too much water building up against the walls, or the soil that is around your property swells and exerts pressure that forces the foundation wall inward.
Until now, homeowners had few choices for repairing foundation walls, except to excavate around the wall and 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.
Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System Is the Solution!
The Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System utilizes proven engineering methods to secure and stabilize deteriorating basement walls. What’s more, the system works on any kind of basement wall – concrete block, clay block, poured concrete, timber, or stone. The system consists of an interior wall plate, an exterior soil anchor and a connecting steel rod to stabilize foundation walls by counteracting pressure exerted against the wall.
The system is a property owner’s 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.
The Grip-Tite Wall Anchor’s are spaced in different locations along a wall and rod extenders can be used to avoid decks, flowerbeds and other landscaping.
Installing The Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System usually takes less than one day, and the technicians will leave your home and lawn as it was before the installation. 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 hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil or another problem, don’t risk the investment in your home by failing to address the issue. Benefits:
- Minimal excavation or disturbance to property, lawn or landscaping.
- Installed in a day or less in some cases.
- 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).
