American Foundation & Basement Repairs, LLC provides extensive foundation and bowed wall repair services. Wall anchors are the most frequently used treatment for bowed wall repair. A weak foundation can be very alarming for homeowners - particularly when the wall is bowing, buckling, or appears to be in danger of actually caving in.
Because of the physical appearance of the foundation walls, many homeowners believe that the only safe and effective solution for their house is to get rid of the bowed wall and have it substituted with a newly constructed one. We can provide expert consultation in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Asheville, Johnson City, and Cookeville to help you determine what is happening to your walls. Even if the circumstances appear to be very bad, a homeowner may have several options for repairing their foundation - including options which do not consist of foundation replacement, such as with the use of wall anchors.
A Sturdy Wall System That Works
You need to straighten your foundation walls to their previous, straight position ASAP and our wall anchors should be able to achieve this common type of foundation repair. Wall anchors are really a three-piece system, which consists of a wall plate which is connected to the observable side of the basement wall structure, a wall anchor which is located in the soil, along with a steel rod which connects the plate to the anchor. The wall plate holds the foundation wall, and the anchor is positioned in the soil to hold it in place. Next, every single wall plate is tightened on the joining rod, pushing up against the foundation wall to prevent all inward motion.
