Wall Anchors

MHM Foundation Solutions offers wall anchors from SafeBasements™. The main purpose of a wall anchor is to fix leaning, bowed walls. If your Pierre, Watertown, or Aberdeen area home has walls which are bowing into the basement of your home, you need to get them stabilized and pushed back to their original position before they cause serious structural damage. If left untreated, a bowing wall can actually collapse in on itself, and this can naturally cause a lot of damage and is a huge safety hazard for you and your family. Check our service area to see if we offer work in your area.

Our foundation repair experts have a lot of experience with installing wall anchors, and we know that they'll prove to be effective at taking care of your leaning, bowed walls once and for all. No longer will you need to be embarrassed by your leaning basement walls. Also, you won't have to worry about them falling in on themselves someday. We can provide wall anchor installation for your home in a mess-free, quick manner so you won't have to wait weeks and weeks to take care of your foundation problem.

Fix Bowed Walls

Wall plate anchors are used by MHM Foundation Solutions to fix bowed walls. These anchors will be able to support, strengthen, and push your foundation walls back to where they need to be. Many homeowners call us up on a regular basis and ask what causes their bowed walls and what they can do to fix them. A bowed wall can be caused from a variety of things, such as poor construction materials or techniques, hydrostatic pressure from the soil, and many other causes. Regardless of the reason why your home has bowed walls, we will diagnose the problem and get it taken care of immediately so you don't have to have a structurally unsound home.

Wall Anchor Installation Process

  1. Placement of the wall anchor is determined by making careful measurements both inside and outside of the home
     
  2. Small holes are then drilled through the basement block
     
  3. Anchor rods are driven through the block wall, and into the soil outside
     
  4. Earth plate is driven into virgin, unexcavated soil
     
  5. Wall plate is attached to the anchor rod inside the basement
     
  6. Ball and socket assemblies are installed and tightened to torque specifications

Traditional Wall Anchor Problems
  • A hole will need to be dug for every anchor. This is extremely inconvenient and requires maintenance as the dirt in your yard will settle each season.
     
  • Hardware can create a binding situation. This problem can make the wall anchor worthless when fixing your structural problem.
     
  • When the earth anchor is put in soft soil, it has a soft or spongy reaction to the torque which is applied
     
  • 1 to 2 hours required for the installation time
     
  • Uses old and no longer effective technologies
     
  • The size of the hole which was dug in your yard limits the size of the wall anchor to be used, which in turn, means reduced holding power.

Basement Wall Anchor

Can be easily over-tightened, which causes the rod to bend and become weak

Square nuts can cause incorrect torque readings

Corner of nuts make contact first, causing the nut and threads to bind

Inaccurate torque readings cause pull to the earth anchor which is not very stable or effective

Dug-up dirt is soft, which in turn, means the wall anchor will start to move and settle in the earth
