Commercial Bowed Wall Repair
When soil gets saturated with water, it will expand and cause pressure to build up on foundation walls. This pressure often leads to cracked foundation and bowing or bulging walls. When the pressure being exerted is more than a wall can handle, the force will destroy the structural stability of a wall. Over time, the cycle of wet and dry causes foundation walls to weaken and often the result is inward movement. Bowed walls require wall anchors - a great way to repair your foundation and save your current foundation as opposed to replacing it.
At American Foundation & Basement Repairs, LLC we have the permanent solution to this wall movement problem. We install a wall anchoring product that permanently stabilizes foundation walls. We can straighten foundation walls over time without the cost and disruption of foundation replacement.
The earth anchors we use for commercial wall stabilization are very strong, made of galvanized steel and are embedded securely into the earth, away from the foundation wall. Then, we connect the anchors to heavy-duty, steel wall plates with long, threaded, galvanized steel rods. The anchors will hold the wall in its current position, without any further adjustment. Once the wall is stabilized, we then have the ability to tighten the wall anchors when the soil shrinks, often further reducing the bowing. Our method of repair enables the wall to have improved strength and straightening of the bowing foundation wall.
