Foundation Repair Case Studies: Extreme Bowing Basement Wall Repair in Greensburg PA

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 by Alyssa Petrella

Challenge

In Greensburg, Pennsylvania the side wall of homeowner David’s house was bowing inward so severely that he was afraid that his wall might fall.

Solution

Service Advisor Michael Richmond determined that the foundation wall was bowing 4 1/2 “. This is a very extreme case of a failing structural foundation. For a stabilization method Michael had 5 Channel anchors installed along the 23 ft. wall. Channel anchors are installed by applying 7 ft. high channel plates to the basement wall having them anchored to earth plates that are installed in the load bearing soil in the exterior yard. The connection of the plates holds the wall in place. Homeowner David was given a tightening kit that he will be able to use over time to attempt to straighten the wall back to its original position.
