Are My Basement Walls Safe?

Are my basement walls safe? - Image 1


Foundation cracks or leaning basement walls could be signs of wall failure – especially if you notice they’ve gotten worse over time. Left untreated, they can lead to wall failure. And no one wants to deal with that kind of scary situation in their home!

Cracks and leaning are caused by good, old Mother Nature and may be related to expanding and contracting clay soil, frost, or hydrostatic pressure. All these issues put a lot of pressure on your foundation and when it becomes more than the walls can handle, bad things happen.

Fortunately, as long as you don’t put it off too long, most foundation problems can be solved.

First, you’ll need an experienced and specialized contractor like Ayers Basement Systems. We offer several solutions to permanently stabilize your home and give you back your peace of mind.

Options like CarbonArmor carbon fiber straps and our patented ArmorLock system work well when access outside the home is limited. The PowerBrace System is a different method to support basement walls that doesn’t require any invasive drilling or digging on the property. It allows for straightening over time and also protects the integrity of your home’s floor system.

Other solutions include wall anchors like our exclusive GeoLock Wall Anchor System, which provides the best opportunity to straighten a foundation wall over time.

The easiest way to reduce stress and find out whether your home has a structural issue or just superficial cracking is to simply contact us and schedule a free inspection and estimate with one of our foundation experts.
