As a new homeowner began to take possession of and move into his house in Powell, OH, he noticed a few issues that concerned him. A wall in the garage attached to the house had various cracks and gaps between some of the blocks, and it appeared to be slightly tilting inward.
While these are common signs of foundation failure, the new owner wanted to be sure the home would be structurally sound. As he began to research repair options, the owner came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online. He was then eager to contact us and meet with one of our inspectors.
The inspector completed a thorough evaluation of the home, and he presented the owner with one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions that would work best with the short block wall.
Foreman Jamey Hackett and his crew permanently reinforced the problematic garage will by installing several Wall Anchors.
The crew first took great care to dig a trench in stable soil away from the foundation wall. This trench is where heavy-duty galvanized earth anchors are securely embedded. Small holes were then drilled through the foundation wall, and galvanized steel rods were driven out to connect interior wall plates and the earth anchors.
These durable wall anchors forever stabilize the wall and prevent any further cracking or inward bowing. The unique system also offers the best opportunity to straighten the wall.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair has helped him create a safe and stable living environment.
