During the last several years, homeowners in Westerville, OH, have been monitoring a potential structural issue outside their home. They noticed a retaining wall outside their basement walk-out was beginning to fail. It was cracking and slightly tilting inward.
The homeowners were not only concerned about their safety, but how these issues could affect the future resale of their house. They were motivated to contact Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads. After meeting with one of our inspectors, the homeowners were equally excited for one of our crews to fix these problems for good.
First, the crew excavated the earth outside the retaining wall down to the wall’s footer. The wall was then pushed back to as plumb as possible. Then, two Wall Anchors were installed to further straighten and stabilize the retaining wall. Wall Anchor Covers were placed over the visible anchor plates to conceal them, and all cracks were repaired and filled.
The homeowners are pleased this reliable repair solution has helped enhance the safety and appearance of their home.
