Let’s investigate how wall anchors can help balance out your foundation:
Why are my foundation walls tilting in?
Cracked or bowing foundation walls happen when the hydrostatic pressure outside your foundation is too much for your foundation to bear. Water in the soil around your foundation presses against the walls with so much power that the concrete eventually gives way, causing leaning or bowing walls. There is nothing on the inside of your foundation that can withstand the pressure from outside.
Poor drainage can also result in hydrostatic pressure, so search for signs that your gutters are not depositing water far from your foundation. Also look out for any tree roots that are growing into your foundation walls and destabilizing the structure.
What can wall anchors do for your foundation?
How do wall anchors work?
Wall anchors work best if you have a few feet around the sides of your home to provide room for installation. The wall anchors reach out from your foundation walls into the solid dirt beyond your home, supporting the foundation wall from the inside. These wall anchors provide vital resistance against hydrostatic pressure and other outside forces with the goal that your foundation walls remain stable. After some time, these wall anchors can stop inward bowing and even enable your foundation to resume its original position.
