Bowed Wall Repair


Bowed Wall Repair

Repair Cracks in Your Foundation

You may have noticed that you have cracks in your basement walls or cracks in your exterior brickwork. You may also have bowed walls, cracks in drywall, a sinking foundation and doors and windows that no longer properly align. These are all signs of foundation damage. Pressure that builds up around the bottom of your house due to hydrostatic pressure can cause problems in the interior and exterior of your house—and in every room, not just the basement. An Advanced Basement Solutions certified foundation specialist can look at the damage and determine how best to control and stabilize your foundation, so that the shifting and bowing is stabilized.

Wall Anchors

Wall Anchor - The Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor System utilizes proven engineering methods to secure and stabilize deteriorating basement walls. The system works on several kinds of basement walls - concrete block, clay block or poured concrete. 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 Anchors 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. 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.

The Force

The Force is a patented system structural tension-loaded, steel I-beam system that is designed to straighten block or concrete walls over time. Not an alternative to The Reinforcer, The Force is recommended in more extreme cases where the bowing is in excess of 2-inches or the wall has severely shifted. Without excavation or homeowner assistance, The Force's unique I-beam/spring-coil design helps straighten walls over time. Unlike other bracket-based systems, The Force utilizes a tension-loaded spring design that supplies a constant 1000 pounds of force on the wall.

Benefits:

  • No excavation required
  • Self-sustaining
  • Cost effective
  • Maintenance free
  • Straightens wall over time
