A sure sign of a failing foundation is a bowed or leaning wall. No matter what the foundation wall is made from (brick, cinder block, concrete), a damaged wall is just a ticking time bomb. A bowed or leaning wall is usually caused by hydrostatic pressure in the soil around your home. The soil can become oversaturated and begin pushing against your foundation walls. An effective way of reversing the damage of a bowed wall is through the installation of wall plate anchors.
Common Applications of Wall Plate Anchors
- Bowing Walls
- Bulging Walls
- Cracks in Foundations
- Leaning Walls
- Rotating Foundations
