What Are Wall Anchors?

A wall anchor is a system that is used to stabilize and reinforce bowed or cracked basement walls. These anchors are made up of two main components: an interior wall plate that goes against the damaged wall, and an exterior anchor that is placed at a distance from the home’s foundation. The two are connected by a steel rod, creating tension that helps to straighten and secure the wall.

Wall anchors are typically used when basement walls have started to bow or crack due to pressure from the soil surrounding them. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as erosion, poor drainage, or an increase in hydrostatic pressure from excessive rain or groundwater.

Signs that Your Bowing Walls Need Anchors

Signs that your walls may need wall anchor installation include:

  • Horizontal or stair-step cracks in the basement walls
  • Bulging or bowed basement walls
  • Gaps between the walls and the floors or ceilings
  • Difficulty opening or closing doors and windows in the affected area

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to address them as soon as possible before they worsen and potentially compromise the structural integrity of your home.

The Wall Anchor Installation Process

The process of installing wall anchors involves the following steps:

  1. Inspection: Our team will conduct a thorough inspection of your foundation and walls to determine the extent of the damage and identify the best placement for the anchors.
  2. Excavation: We will excavate the soil around your home’s foundation to create space for installing the exterior anchors.
  3. Installation of Anchors: The exterior anchors will be placed and secured in the excavated holes, and the steel rods will be connected to them.
  4. Placement of Interior Wall Plates: The interior wall plates will then be installed against the damaged walls and anchored into place.
  5. Tightening of Rods: The steel rods will be tightened, creating tension that will help to straighten and secure the walls.
  6. Finishing Touches: Any excavated soil will be backfilled, and any disturbed landscaping will be restored to its original state.
