Until now, homeowners had few choices for repairing foundation walls, except to excavate around the wall and build a new basement wall. This solution is expensive, time consuming and destructive to landscaping. Not only that, the problem can recur if the wall is not properly rebuilt or if steps are not taken to correct the causes of the initial deterioration.

Wall Anchors

Wall AnchorsThe Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor System is a cost-effective alternative to rebuilding a foundation wall. The system uses anchoring plates and rods to stabilize the wall and counteract the hydrostatic pressure being exerted against the wall. By counteracting this pressure, the causes contributing to the deterioration are lessened.

What's more, the system works on any kind of basement wall - concrete block, clay block, poured concrete, timber, or stone.

The system is a property owner's alternative to completely removing and rebuilding basement walls that have become cracked, leaning or bowed as a result of pressures exceeding the allowable design capacity of the wall.

Installation

Installing The Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor System usually takes less than one day, and the technicians will leave your home and lawn as it was before the installation. Anchors are placed in specific locations along the wall, and rod extenders can be added to avoid all decking, cement work, flower beds, and other landscaping. And because the system works with the wall and ground, structural changes to your house are unnecessary.

Whether the cracking or bowing is caused by hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil or another problem, don't risk the investment in your home by failing to address the issue.
