Photo Album: Stabilizing and Straightening a Failing Wall in Mount Vernon, OH

Album Description

After living in their house for 25 years, homeowners in Mount Vernon, OH, wanted to prepare to put their house on the market in the near future. They knew various repair projects needed to be completed in and around the 130-year-old home before doing so. This included addressing a cracking and tilting wall in the basement. This wall is part of the Michigan basement, which is an area that was excavated from a crawl space.

After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads highlighting Wall Anchors – one of our foundation repair solutions – the homeowners were eager to contact us to learn more about this repair. They met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the wall and further educated the owners on the wall anchors and our installation procedures.

One of our crews then installed six Wall Anchors on this problematic wall. Not only do these anchors permanently stabilize the wall where they are installed, their unique design allows them to be tightened for wall improvement.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair has helped ensure the structural stability and resale value of the home.
