Put Your Walls and Foundation Back on Solid Ground

Vertical and angled cracks are usually caused by heaving, where horizontal cracking is likely from lateral pressure of the soil against the wall. Seasonal and climatic changes can cause problems with your foundation also. Hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil or other problems may cause bowed, buckled or cracked walls. Rebuilding the wall is not always an option, and generally does not solve the problem. Installing an anchor system into the wall will not only repair the problem, but will cost less than trying to replace it.

Brick-Wall-Crack Foundation 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.

My husband and I had about 6 waterproofing companies come out for estimates. All were $6-12,000. The very next day after contacting ARK, Mike Perry ( co-owner) came out himself and gave us THE most reasonable price. He came out with his crew of two young men and what we experienced was by far the most professional, competent and friendly services that included installing drain and pump. And to boot they even jackhammered our front stoop and hauled it away for a nominal cost. Can’t say enough good about this company. I researched Angie’s list and BBB and their ratings are stellar consistently. I experienced exactly what their excellent ratings showed.

Showed up on time and completed work early. Was almost $1000 less than their competitors with almost the process and warranty.

Mark E.

Excellent and honest service provided by Mike and his staff. Mike was knowledgeable, explained the work to be done, and quoted a reasonable price (very much in line with 3 other estimates received). The work was started and finished on time and in a most professional manner. My basement is now dry for the first time in 26 years and I could not be happier with my decision to go with ARK Basement Services.
