Basement Wall Crack Repair
Angled and vertical cracks in walls are usually caused by heaving. Meanwhile, horizontal cracking is likely from the pressure of outside soil against the wall. Seasonal and climatic changes can also cause problems with your basement walls and foundation. Additionally, hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil, or other problems may cause bowed, buckled, or cracked walls.
Rebuilding cracked walls is not always an option and generally does not solve the problem. At ARK, we install anchor systems into cracked walls to ensure that not only the problem is fixed, but also to provide you with a reasonably priced solution.
Foundation and Brick Wall Repair
Installation is usually completed in a matter of days without much, if any, disturbance to the landscaping. The process is simple: A steel anchor rod is inserted horizontally through the wall into the outside earth. A steel anchor is then attached to the rod through a hole in the ground. The rod is connected to the anchor plate and tightened until the pressure of the solid soil is pulled to tighten the failing wall. If there is a patio, deck, or sidewalk in between the failing soil and the anchor hole, that is not a problem.
