Bowing WallWhy Do I Need Wall Anchors?

If you have foundation issues involving your foundation walls and their stability, you will most likely need to have wall anchors installed. Specifically, Basement Masters Waterproofing can install wall anchors to secure and stabilize failing foundation walls that are leaning or bowing. If you choose to ignore these signs or try to install a solution yourself, you could be in danger. These are signs that your foundation is no longer stable and needs a professional’s touch. While you’re paying attention to the foundation, look for other signs of foundation failure including foundation cracks, sloping floors, and ceiling cracks. All are signs that something is seriously wrong with your home.

What Causes These Foundation Issues?

These issues can occur when there is too much water pressure building up against your foundation walls. This can happen due to:

  • Soil swelling from plumbing leaks
  • Poor drainage
  • Excess rain

The hydrostatic pressure that builds up against your foundation walls can eventually cause the foundation wall to fall inward or crack, leaving your home and family exposed to the elements. To avoid that, you’ll want wall anchors installed right away.

How Do Wall Anchors Work?

Wall anchors are a great solution for failing foundation walls. They can be applied to any type of foundation, including concrete block, brick, timber, stone, or poured concrete. The wall anchor system consists of an interior wall plate, exterior soil anchor, and a connecting steel rod. These parts work together to counteract the pressure building up against your basement walls, keeping them strong and stabilized for years to come.

If you are looking for a solution for your bowing basement walls, wall anchor systems are a great option. You don’t need to go through the hassle and expense of removing and rebuilding your basement walls. Instead, have Basement Masters Waterproofing provide you with a no-cost evaluation and quote for a professional-grade system. Call today!
