Photo Album: Wall Anchor System Stabilizes Basement Walls in Westerville, OH

Album Description

Homeowners in Westerville, OH, noticed cracks in their foundation walls, which were also bowing due to hydrostatic pressure. As water saturates the backfill soils around a foundation, the water exerts pressure against the wall.

Based on a local structural engineer's recommendations, the homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority. Our crews completed several foundation repair and waterproofing projects.

Existing steel I-Beams were replaced, CarbonFiber wall supports and a CarbonFiber corner strap was installed, and a Helical TieBack and Wall Anchor were also installed. Waterproofing methods included the installation of a footer drain, a French drain, and the BasementGutter drainage system.

The homeowners are now happy to have a dry and stable home!
