OUR BASEMENT & FOUNDATION SERVICES IN RALEIGH
Bowing Wall Repair In Raleigh
A home is usually the biggest investment a person or family makes – not to mention the value of the possessions contained within it. A cave-in can cause irreparable damage to the house and contents making it important to secure, stabilize and correct deteriorating basement walls — before it’s too late. Bowed, cracked or leaning basement walls are a sign that something is going very wrong with the structural integrity of your property. This issue happens when hydrostatic pressure from too much water building up against the walls, or the soil that is around your property swells and exerts pressure that forces the foundation wall inward.
OUR SOLUTION TO BOWING WALLS
THE GRIP-TITE® WALL ANCHOR SYSTEM
In the past homeowners had few choices for repairing foundation walls, except to excavate around the wall or build a new basement wall. This solution is expensive, time consuming, and destructive to landscaping. Not only that , the problem can recur if the wall is not properly rebuilt or if steps are not taken to correct the causes of the initial deterioration.
The Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor System utilizes proven engineering methods to secure and stabilize deteriorating basement walls. What’s more, the system works on any kind of basement wall – concrete block, clay block, poured concrete, timber, or stone.
The system consists of an interior wall plate, an exterior soil anchor, commonly referred to as a “deadman anchor” and a connecting steel rod to stabilize foundation walls by counteracting pressure exerted against the wall. The system is a property owner’s alternative to completely removing and rebuilding basement walls that have become cracked, leaning or bowed as a result of pressures exceeding the allowable design capacity of the wall.
Grip-Tite® Wall Anchors are spaced in different locations along a wall and rod extenders can be used to avoid decks, flowerbeds and other landscaping.
Installing the Grip-Tite® Wall Anchor System usually takes less than one day, and the technicians will leave your home and lawn as it was before the installation. Anchors are placed in specific locations along the wall, and rod extenders can be added to avoid all decking, cement work, flower beds, and other landscaping. And because the system works with the wall and ground, structural changes to your house are unnecessary.
Whether the cracking or bowing is caused by hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil or another problem, don’t risk the investment in your home by failing to address the issue.
THIS ANCHOR SYSTEM HAS OFFERS THESE BENEFITS:
- Minimal excavation or disturbance to property, lawn or landscaping.
- Installed in a day or less.
- No wait ‘ can be installed year-round.
- Easily installed in areas with decks, landscaping or flowerbeds.
- Cost-effective ‘ less cost than re-building foundation wall(s).
Helical Pier Installation in Raleigh
Helical piers (also known as helical piles) are used to repair an existing structure and also for new construction in place of micropiles, caissons, geopiers or other deep foundation systems. They can also be used instead of an over- excavation. The helical pier can be both time and cost effective.
When helical piers are used to repair an existing structure, they are “screwed” into the soil until a pre-determined torque is reached. A bracket is then placed on the steel shaft and positioned under the footing of the structure, transferring the load of the structure to the helical piers. The structure can then be stabilized or lifted back level.
Helical Piers have been in use for almost 200 years, and more recently have become more popular with engineers and contractors and used often in place of more costly alternatives.
