How We Repair Bowed Basement Walls
Our team of foundation repair professionals uses a variety of quality foundation repair products to fix bowed or leaning basement walls. We have the experience you need to inspect and determine the cause and extent of any damage to your foundation walls. Look below to see how we repair bowed basement walls.
Our team uses a patented and high quality wall anchor system which is designed to repair bowed basement walls. The system consists of an anchor and a wall plate designed to pull your basement walls back to where they are supposed to be and provide the needed strength to keep the walls in place. When the wall anchor is installed, the lateral strength of your wall is restored and will resist the forces exerted by expanding soils.
For some projects, wall anchors are not required. In these cases, we use steel beams specifically designed to prevent further leaning or bowing of your foundation walls. These beams are installed against the wall and secured to your basement’s footer and floor beams. Once installed, our technicians can adjust the anchors, providing additional protection.
