Is your basement showing signs of damage like cracking and inwardly bowing walls? Such problems suggest your walls require additional support.
With Ohio Basement Systems’ dependable wall anchor system, you can stabilize your basement walls, ensure your home’s structural integrity, and prevent further issues.
We offer durable basement repair services that include the installation of wall anchors to permanently brace weakened walls. Our wall anchors are designed to grip stable soil, cease wall movement, and potentially straighten your walls over time.
Act now to reinforce your home’s basement and avoid the costly prospect of a full replacement.
What are Wall Anchors?
Wall anchors are steel components anchored into the ground outside of the basement walls. A wall anchor system includes three major pieces:
- Interior anchor plates secured to basement walls
- Exterior earth anchors embedded in stable soil
- Steel rods connecting these brackets
Wall anchors extend into the soil beyond the disturbed area near the foundation, providing crucial reinforcement. They also halt lateral movement to further stabilize the wall when periodically tightened by professionals.
Signs You Need Wall Anchors
You should consider wall anchors for your home if you notice:
- Basement Wall Cracks: Horizontal or stair-step wall cracks indicate shifting walls.
- Bowing Walls: Walls that bow or tilt inwards require reinforcement.
- Basement Moisture: Seepage or dampness lead to mold and structural damage.
- Musty Odors: Unpleasant smells suggest water intrusion and mold growth.
You can prevent further damage by installing wall anchors at these early warning signs.
Is a Wall Anchor System Necessary?
Proactively stabilizing your walls with a wall anchor system is essential. Further movement or neglect can result in leaks, mold growth, and even catastrophic structural failure. Implementing wall anchors in conjunction with a comprehensive basement repair strategy is advisable, particularly for concrete block or poured basement walls showing signs of wear.
However, sometimes property lines and the lack of exterior space prohibit wall anchor installation. We offer other solutions, such as an adjustable steel I-beam system, that are installed completely in your basement and do not require exterior digging. Contact us today for a free assessment and repairs tailored to your needs.
How We Install Wall Anchors
Our certified process follows these steps:
- Exterior excavation for earth anchors (at least 10 feet away from basement walls)
- Drilling holes for the anchor rods into stable soil
- Driving the anchor rods hydraulically until resistance is met
- Embedding earth anchors in exterior soil
- Attaching wall plates to the interior walls
- Connecting the rods to the wall and earth anchors
- Backfilling the excavated area
- Periodically tightening anchors to potentially improve walls
