Wall Anchors

Are you noticing issues like wall cracks or bowing in your basement? These problems are glaring indicators that your basement walls require immediate stabilization. 

Baker’s Waterproofing offers a reliable wall anchor solution to fortify your basement walls and halt further structural erosion. We provide durable basement repair services featuring wall anchor installations engineered to securely hold onto firm soil layers, halt foundational shifting, and progressively rectify distorted walls. 

Act now to strengthen your basement and avoid the costly expense of a complete foundation rebuild. 

What Are Wall Anchors? 

Wall anchors are robust metal assemblies installed into the stable soil away from your basement walls. The wall anchor setup consists of three integral pieces: 

  • Internal wall plates affixed to your basement walls 
  • Exterior earth anchor plates 
  • Connector rods linking these plates 

These anchors reach into soil zones beyond the compromised ground near your foundation, offering a much-needed structural brace. Not only do they halt lateral movements, but they also consistently reinforce the walls and offer potential improvement with periodic adjustments. 

When Should You Consider Wall Anchors? 

Signs that your home may require wall anchors include: 

  • Wall Cracks: Vertical, stair-step, or diagonal basement wall cracks signify unstable walls. 
  • Leaning Walls: Basement walls that are bowing or leaning inward are a clear warning sign of walls that require additional support. 
  • Basement Humidity: Persistent moisture causes mold growth and potential structural issues. 
  • Musty Scents: Unpleasant odors often indicate moisture issues and the potential presence of mold. 

Installing wall anchors at the earliest instance prevents these problems from escalating. 

The Importance of Wall Anchors 

Overlooking destabilized foundation walls is dangerous. Neglect can lead to water seepage, mold growth, hazardous living conditions, and structural collapse. 

Wall anchors are essential to a holistic basement rehabilitation strategy, especially vital for homes with concrete block or poured concrete walls showing signs of degradation.
