After living in their house for 15 years, homeowners in Delaware, OH, were ready to put their house on the market. But before doing so, they knew they needed to address some repair projects. One of these included the bottom portion of a wall in the attached garage that was cracking and tilting inward.
Along with being concerned with the home’s resale value, the current owners also wanted to ensure the property’s safety and structural stability. During their search for repair options, the owners came across Ohio Basement Authority’s website and they wanted to contact us for further guidance. Inspector Clark Sturgill visited to evaluate the condition of the problematic wall. Clark then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions that would work perfectly with the bottom portion of the wall.
Foreman Jamey Hackett and his crew then installed several Wall Anchors on the wall.
Heavy-duty, galvanized earth anchors are securely embedded in stable soil away from the foundation wall. These earth anchors are connected to sturdy steel wall plates with long galvanized steel rods.
This system will permanently stabilize the wall, as well as offer the best opportunity to straighten it over time without the cost and disruption of a foundation replacement project. The unique system also offers the ability to tighten the anchors when exterior soil shrinks during dry periods.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair method has helped them create a safer living environment for the next owners.
