Repair Buckling or Bowing Foundation Walls Permanently!

The walls of your basement and foundation are engineered to provide a strong, solid base for the buildings constructed above them. If these crucial supports crack, bow or tip inward, support for the structure is compromised.

When basement and retaining walls are designed, the amount of pressure that will be exerted against them is taken into account, but unpredictable factors including hydrostatic pressure, frost, ice, water movement and expansive clays can react strongly against the walls and produce dangerous cracks that can lead to collapse.

If you discover leaning, bowing or cracking walls, contact us today. We will provide a free home inspection and answer any questions you may have about repairing your foundation or retaining walls, with no strings attached. At BL Bennett Construction, the safety of your home always comes first! We pride ourselves on our commitment to honest, thorough evaluations of every structure’s unique situation and present only the most cost-efficient, guaranteed solutions to foundation problems.

Foundation Wall Anchors

Made of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel, wall anchors feature an earth anchor, wall plate and a connecting rod. Wall anchors are one of the best solutions for straightening buckling walls.

 

Use Them For:

  • Outdoor excavation
  • The repair of bulging/bowing walls
  • Repairing walls that tilt at the top or sliding at the bottom
  • Correcting severe wall failure

 

I-Beam Wall Brace Systems

An I-beam system utilizes heavy-duty steel beams to prevent further inward movement of your walls, and may even correct previous displacement by tightening the braces over time. These systems can be installed without entering your home, making this repair system extremely convenient for homeowners.

 

Use Them For:

  • Outdoor excavation
  • The repair of bulging/bowing walls
  • Repairing walls that tilt at the top or sliding at the bottom
  • Correcting severe wall failure
 

Carbon Fiber Systems

To repair bowing or bulging walls, a carbon fiber system can be used. This innovative solution features a fiber-reinforced polymer 10 times stronger than steel, which is specifically designed to repair damaged foundation walls. These fiber strips are mounted using a maximum strength epoxy resin, which absorbs pressure from the walls and keeps the foundation stabilized.

 

ShotCrete Wall Restoration Systems

Shotcrete is the inclusive term used for concrete or mortar which is pumped through a hose and “shot” into a crack or defect in a foundation wall. Used in combination with a wall anchor system, ShotCrete can repair some of the most severely damaged foundation walls.

 

Use It For:

  • Outdoor excavation
  • The repair of bulging/bowing walls
  • Repairing walls that tilt at the top or sliding at the bottom
  • Correcting severe wall failure

Helical Wall Anchors

Helical wall anchors, which are sometimes referred to as helical tiebacks or screw anchors, consist of a heavy-duty shaft with helical blades attached. When installed, these blades are pushed into the soil using mechanical force. They extend beyond the foundation walls, and “grip” the wall with metal plates.

 

Use Them For:

  • Some types of outdoor excavation
  • The repair of bulging/bowing walls
  • Repairing walls that tilt at the top or sliding at the bottom
