Installing The Channel Anchor System
AquaGuard™ Channel Anchors are a versatile, effective system that can stabilize walls that are bowing, tipping, pushing in at the bottom, tilting in at the top, or showing similar signs of failure. They are installed with minimal disturbance to your lawn and landscaping, often in a day’s time or less.
To install your channel anchor system, our foundation repair experts will follow these seven steps:
Prepare Holes for Anchors
The first step to install the foundation channel anchors is to prepare the holes of where the anchors will be drilled. Our experts will dig large holes where each anchor will be installed and will set the soil aside for later. A large sheet of plastic is put down and a power auger is used to make the hole the correct size.
Foundation Wall Preparation
Once the holes have been dug for the anchors, small holes must be drilled into your foundation walls that align with the location of the anchor holes. The holes in your foundation wall and the holes for the anchors will be connected with steel anchor rods.
Connect Rods to Anchors
The steel rods are then pushed through the anchor hole and is attached by a nut to keep them connected. Once the rods are secure, the soil is backfilled in the hole to bury the anchors and hide the work that was done.
Mount Channel Anchor
The steel channel anchor is then mounted onto your interior foundation wall to secure its position. At AquaGuard, we use the IntelliBrace™ Channel because of its anti-corrosion and anti-rust coating.
Channel Anchors are Connected to Floor
Since the channel anchors go through the floor, they must be secured with a steel bracket and bolts to stabilize the anchor and avoid any bowing or buckling.
Installing channel anchors can get messy, but we ensure that we’ll leave the project with your yard will look just as good as it did when we arrived. We will replace all landscaping that may have been disrupted during the project and fill in any sod or soil that was moved during the process.
