Methods of Fixing Bowed Foundation Walls
Frontier Basement Systems makes use of high-quality foundation wall anchors for fixing bowed foundation walls. As stated above, these wall anchors can be installed quickly and without much mess. Our professional foundation repair experts are ready to work with you to get your foundation damage under control before it progresses into more complex problems.
The Frontier Basement System wall anchor system offers a reliable and solid foundation repair solution to all of our customers. Our wall anchors contain 3 main components: an internal wall plate, a linked steel rod, plus an external earth anchoring system. Working in conjunction with each other, they do not just support and strengthen the foundation wall, they are able to handle pressure being pressed up against the wall and return the wall to its initial, vertical position.
If it has shifted substantially in the middle and there's a large horizontal crack, it is a judgment call as to whether the wall should be replaced. Usually the minimum that needs to be completed is the pressure has to be taken off the wall. This is done by digging to the footer level outside, and setting up a field of crushed limestone between the earth and wall structure. The area between the pieces of limestone soaks up pressure from the soil, removing it from the wall. Rebar pours and or interior wall braces tend to be necessary to reinforce the wall.
