Wall Anchors Stabilize Foundation Wall in Mansfield, OH

While doing work for a homeowner in Mansfield, OH, a contractor realized he would not be able to complete work that would permanently stabilize the homeowner's foundation. He contacted Ohio Basement Authority on her behalf to make sure the issues received the proper attention.

One of the foundation walls was bowing and cracking, and its stability was becoming a cause for concern. 

In order to permanently stabilize the wall and attempt to straighten it, one of our expert crews installed six wall anchors on the west wall.

After sod is removed and an earth anchor hole is augured, a small hole is drilled through the basement all and a rod is driven out. An earth anchor is installed and attached to the rod, and a wall plate is attached and tightened. The outside hole is backfilled and sod is replaced. The anchors can be tightened at intervals and improve wall condition.

The contractor and homeowner are pleased the foundation will be structurally sound for years to come.
