Wall Anchors as Foundation Solutions for Denver, CO

The bowing and leaning walls in your basement are most likely caused by pressure from the soil outside. When there is excess groundwater in the soil, it causes an increase in hydrostatic pressure. If this pressure increases too much, it will push against the foundation, causing it to shift and the walls to bow and crack. That is where wall anchors come in. These devices attach to the wall from the interior and anchor into the soil adjacent to the yard. This allows them to put opposite lateral pressure on the walls, pulling them back into place.

To install wall anchors, a small section of the sod in the adjacent yard must be removed. Next, the earth anchor hole can be augured into the ground. A long steel rod is installed through a small hole in the bowing wall. This rod will connect the wall and the anchor to apply the necessary pressure. Once the anchor is installed in the hole outside and attached to the rod, the wall plate can be attached to the interior of the wall over the rod. Te plate is tightened into place, securing the rod and attaching the anchor and the wall. Finally, the hole can be filled and the sod replaced. The anchor is tightened at regular, spaced intervals to gradually straighten the wall. This is to ensure that the wall does not become overly strained and crack from the pressure.
