Obviously, this is going to cause a lot of problems for the overall structural integrity of your family’s home.
There are a lot of homeowners who want to know what caused their bowing basement wall to begin with. Many times, a bowed wall is a result of hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding the home. Whenever you have certain types of soil around your home, typically clay soil, it is very absorbent which can cause major foundation settlement problems. Whenever it rains, it quickly absorbs the moisture and swells up. When the soil swells, it puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. This pressure is known as hydrostatic pressure, and it can cause your basement walls to start to lean or bow into your home. Luckily, foundation replacement is no longer the only solution to this kind of structural problem, and Seal-Tite can provide you with affordable wall anchor systems.
Determining the best method for your home depends on numerous factors. Seal-Tite’s® certified foundation experts will evaluate your wall and suggest a permanent bowed wall repair solution to fix this problem. Our solutions include:
- Wall Anchors – interior wall plates supported with earth anchors.
- Carbon Fiber Straps – bonded carbon fiber straps that attach to the foundation walls providing wall stability.
- I-Beam Installation – steel beams installed on the interior of your foundation walls to reinforce your home’s structure.
Wall Anchor Systems
Seal-Tite can install wall anchor systems to effectively take care of bowing basement walls in your home. We have a team of foundation repair professionals who have been installing wall anchors for years, so you can rest assured knowing that your structural problem is going to be in good hands with our knowledgeable experts.
Installation: Wall anchors will be installed in stable, load-bearing strata around the damaged basement wall of your home. A wall plate will be installed inside the home on the bowed wall. A steel rod will connect the wall plate to the wall anchor. This rod can be tightened over time to add more lateral pressure to the wall so that it will begin to straighten up back into the position where it should be.
Our steel I-beams represent the optimal solution for addressing bowed wall issues in residences across Virginia (VA), North Carolina (NC), West Virginia (WV), and Tennessee (TN). The strategic deployment of steel I-Beams involves a meticulous process that extends through the floor and securely anchors into the foundational footer.
At the upper end of these beams, a robust attachment to the joists ensures structural integrity. This method of bowed wall repair harnesses the inherent strength of your existing footer and the structural framework of your home, effectively halting any further deterioration or leaning of the affected wall. It not only fortifies the foundation but also preserves the longevity and stability of your entire structure.
Carbon Fiber Straps
Another foundation repair method involves carbon fiber straps a woven material renowned for its remarkable tensile strength that is 10 times stronger than steel. These straps are bonded to the wall with epoxy to provide a low-profile solution that prevents further bowing of the wall.
Carbon fiber foundation straps are used to stabilize and reinforce bowed or cracked foundation walls, it is an extremely strong, non-stretchable, virtually unbreakable material also used to build aircraft. It is a good solution if the wall is only cracking, or is bowing less than 3 inches. It is quite a discrete solution since you can even paint over it making it almost invisible.
