Let’s take a look at how wall anchors can help balance out your foundation:
Why are my foundation walls tilting in?
Cracking or bowing foundation walls occur when the hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding foundation is too much for the structure to bear. Water in the soil will press against the walls so hard that the concrete won’t be able to last against it, which results in bowing walls that appear to lean in. The main problem is that nothing inside of your foundation can withstand the pressure from the outside.
Insufficient drainage can exacerbate hydrostatic pressure, so be on the lookout for signs that your gutters are moving water away from your foundation. Also, be mindful of any tree roots that are growing into your foundation walls and harming the structure.
What can wall anchors do for your foundation?
How do wall anchors work?
Wall anchors work best if you have a few feet on all sides of your home in order to have enough room for installation. The wall anchors extend out from your foundation walls into the strong, good soil beyond your foundation, supporting the walls from the inside. These wall anchors provide essential support against hydrostatic pressure and other outside forces so that your foundation walls will remain stable. These wall anchors can stop bowing walls and may even return your foundation to its original position over time.
