Wall anchors are a reliable solution for repairing and stabilizing bowing walls. They utilize the strength and weight of the hard-packed earth surrounding a property to exert appropriate pressure. The wall anchor comprises three key parts: the wall plate, earth anchor, and steel rod, which work together to prevent further bowing and to straighten your walls over time.

Foundation Repair FAQ

What causes foundation cracks?

Foundation cracks can be a result of soil settlement or hydrostatic pressure. Soil settlement is typically situated in soils which have high clay contents. Clay soil shifts and moves about often, especially when it’s infiltrated with moisture. This creates voids between the soil and the base of the foundation. The foundation isn’t able to support all the weight on its own without anything underneath it.

Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure caused by soil moisture pressing against the foundation. Without proper yard drainage systems, pressure is continuously placed on the foundation, causing it to eventually crack.

If I don't repair my foundation, what could happen?

If you don’t repair your foundation, water will eventually seep in. This causes an assortment of additional problems for the structural integrity of your home.

Is it necessary to get small foundation cracks repaired?

Yes, you should treat all foundation cracks the same no matter how big or small they may be. Over time, small cracks can become much larger, and these larger cracks let in more damaging water.
