WET BASEMENT WATERPROOFING
A wet, leaky, and moisture-filled basement can affect an entire home's structure over time.
Water can cause moderate to severe damage to a foundation, as well, if it's left un-treated.
WALL CRACK REPAIR
As a homeowner, you should be concerned about any basement wall crack in your home.
The basement crack you see may actually be a few feet long on the outside portion of the wall.
SETTLING OR SINKING FOUNDATION REPAIR
Does it seem like your home is sinking? Do you have a sloping floor? Foundation cracks? Sticking door and/or window frames?
If you said yes, then it's possible that your foundation is settling or sinking.
SAGGING FLOOR REPAIR
Many homeowners may choose to ignore their sagging floor and think it's just because they're home is old.
It's important to have a sagging floor evaluated and fixed before it causes further problems.
BASEMENT EGRESS WINDOWS
Basement egress windows are a great way to increase the amount of natural light in your home's basement.
These windows are also used as exit paths for individuals in a basement during a fire.
Damp crawl spaces can lead to musty odors and even structural damage to your family's home.
Anchored Walls offers quality crawl space encapsulation systems for getting rid of the moisture once and for all.

How Do Foundation Cracks Occur?
You may be wondering what causes foundation cracks and damage. Typically, the damage done on a foundation occurs over a long period of time. Soil expansion and contracting soil comes with climate changes. Soil movement is usually the culprit. Water seepage often is a result of foundation cracks caused by unstable soil. Expansive soil combined with heavy rainfall, often results in ruined carpet or flooring, personal property destruction and unhealthy living environment from mold, mildew and contaminated air. Our company has noted that a majority of foundation damage we see especially basement or crawl space water damage could have been avoided. Many times we visit with a property owner and learn that for years problem signs went without being addressed. Don't ignore bowing or buckling walls, foundation wall cracks, if you notice doors or windows in your home are sticking, not operating properly you should give us a call for help. We often see chimneys separating from a home or separation of mortar joints in brick...these are warning signs and need to be looked at by a professional foundation expert. If a bowing or buckling wall or cracked foundation wall is not fixed eventually water slowly and steadily is able to damage a foundation further and cause it to become unstable, as well as unsafe.
To avoid potentially hazardous living conditions for your family, foundation repair needs to be done properly as soon as you notice any cracks in foundation walls, bowing walls, sinking slabs or stoops sinking. Many folks wait to repair a leaky basement or repair a foundation problem until they try to sell their home. With today's disclosure laws you must advise any future property owner of any issues so save yourself unnecessary headaches by dealing with these issues now. Another common mistake we see is untrained homeowners trying to fix problems with "band aid" type products. Putting a coat of "water seal" paint on a leaky wall is not going to permanently fix a leak. Trying to secure a bowed wall or sinking foundation with a support pipe is not going to work, nor pass inspection upon sale of a property. The big box stores are full of gimmicks for the do-it-yourself audience. Unfortunately, we see over and over, people trying to "fix their foundation, bowing wall or leaky basement" sometimes 3, 4 or 5 times only to end up calling in a professional firm with the knowledge, experience and training to repair these issues once and for all. Save yourself the pain, call Anchored Walls today.
