Bowing Wall Remedied In South Boardman, MI
These homeowners called as they were doing some new construction on their home and noticed a fairly significant horizontal crack in their basement wall. Upon inspection, we were able to observe some bowing in the wall. A level against the blocks showed a significant difference between the the crack and the top and bottom of the wall. We had definitely seen worse, but bowing walls are not something to wait on. Often the repairs become significantly more expensive over time and the walls become more dangerous. Now was the time to address it. We installed a series of wall anchors to support the wall. Steel wall plates on the interior of the home are connected to GeoLock Earth Anchors buried in the ground away from the home with long steel rods. Over time, the wall anchors can be tightened with the potential of improving the condition of the wall. This is a permanent fix that will prevent further bowing and will give these homeowners peace of mind.
