Wall Anchors

Are your basement walls showing signs of wear such as cracks or bowing? These symptoms signal that your foundation walls require additional support.

With a dependable wall anchor system from AquaGuard, you can stabilize your foundation and halt further damage. Strengthen your home’s basement now and prevent more expensive repairs later on. 

What Exactly Are Basement Wall Anchors? 

Wall anchors are metal brackets that are inserted into both the interior basement walls and the adjacent ground. A wall anchor system is made of two key elements: 

  • Anchor brackets fastened to the inner side of the basement wall via expansion bolts. 
  • Steel rods linking the brackets to pins drilled deeply into sturdy soil. 

The anchors reach into firm ground further away from your foundation, providing ample support for your basement walls by transferring their weight away from unstable soil. Wall anchors not only halt sideways movement but continue to fortify the foundation as they are tightened. 

Indicators You Require Wall Anchors 

Common signs that your home’s foundation needs wall anchors encompass: 

  • Basement Wall Cracks: Cracks on walls or stair-step gaps at corners indicate inward wall movement. 
  • Bowing Walls: Walls that seem to be arching or angling inward at the top or bottom necessitate reinforcement. 
  • Moisture in Your Basement: Water entering through wall cracks usually results in water damage to any belongings in the basement. 
  • Musty Smells: Musty aromas imply that water has infiltrated the basement, and mold is forming

Installing wall anchors at the initial indicators of deterioration can prevent these issues from escalating. 

Are Basement Wall Anchors Essential? 

Your basement could look like this if you ignore wall damage.

Fortifying weakened foundation walls with a wall anchor system is crucial if you wish to prevent further structural issues. Wall anchors also help deter water ingress into your basement via wall fissures. 

Ignoring cracks or curved walls may also result in mold formation, potentially hazardous living environments, or even extensive structural failure. Taking action promptly is always advantageous. 

We advise incorporating wall anchors into a comprehensive basement waterproofing strategy. Installing additional waterproofing solutions like interior drains or vapor barriers allows the wall anchors to work even better.
