Repairing Your Cracked or Damaged Foundation: Seek Professional Help
Foundation problems can be frightening to a homeowner due to the possible costs to correct it, as well as the concern of damage to property from flooding. When your home’s foundation is shifting, sinking or cracking you will want to find an experienced professional to correct the problem with the least invasive and least expensive option possible. Fortunately there are options available that can solve foundation problems, as well as prove to be cost effective and minimally invasive to the homeowner.
Solutions for Cracking and Bowing
The solutions for foundation cracks and bowing can range from the costly and extreme to the cost effective and less invasive options. An expensive and extreme option for correcting bowing and cracking is to replace the foundation wall in its entirety. As you can imagine this is a costly and extremely invasive solution.
Rebuilding a Foundation Wall: Rebuilding a foundation wall will include significant digging to expose the wall, but also the removal of the damaged wall and rebuilding a new wall. While a new wall will be stable and without any cracks or bowing, the cause of the problem is not addressed. Homeowners must still install other waterproofing systems in order to prevent the same problem from occurring in future years. There are easier, less invasive, and less expensive options that a homeowner can use to correct cracking and bowing problems.
Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor System
A wall anchor system is a less expensive and less invasive alternative to fix the problem of bowing or cracking foundation walls. The anchor system uses steel anchors and rods that are installed below the surface of your lawn connecting to your basement walls to counteract the current pressure, while reinforcing the walls integrity. The installation of this highly effective method minimizes damage to the lawn and can be done most times in a day or less. Once the installation is complete the lawn will appear to be untouched and the structure of the home will be secure.
If your home is showing signs of cracking, bowing, sinking or shifting, then contact Advanced Basement for expert advice and solutions to all of your waterproofing needs.
