Soil pressure on the outside of a foundation wall can push inward until it bows or even cracks. An effective solution to keep this from happening is by installing wall anchors that pass through the wall and reach outside into the yard. The finished result is a safe, stable wall that will result in protection from inward pressure on your home or building’s foundation.
What is a wall Anchor?
Heavy-duty metal plates are installed in stable, undisturbed soil outside your foundation wall. Each anchor is connected by a steel rod to a wall plate which is placed on the inside of the foundation wall and the interior and exterior plates are tightened together. Each component is below the surface and will not be seen when the process is finished! This method also offers the potential to straighten the wall back to its original position.
