Wall Anchors Stabilize Cracking, Tilting Walls in Shelby, OH

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017 by Holly Richards-Purpura


Would you have a clear conscience selling your home knowing it needed some repairs?

After living in their house for many years, homeowners in Shelby, OH, decided it was time to put the home on the market. Before doing so, they knew they needed to address some issues in the basement. After removing paneling from the walls, they discovered various cracks on one of the walls. This wall also was slightly tilting inward.

The homeowners wanted to not only ensure the home’s resale value, but its safety and structural stability as well. After learning more about Ohio Basement Authority, they were eager to contact us for further advice. They met with Inspector Jacob Thomas who evaluated the failing wall and the rest of the foundation. He then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.


The homeowners trusted Jacob’s assessment, and they were eager for one of our crews to install 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 Wall Anchor 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.
