SafeBase™ patented wall anchor system fixes bowed basement walls. The purpose of the wall anchor is to restore lateral strength to the wall, also allowing you to pull the wall straight using the natural expansion, and contraction of the soil.
When the wall anchor is installed and the grade is raised, the lateral strength is restored and will resist the forces exerted by the expanding soil.
When the home goes through wet and dry cycles, the soils natural expansion and contraction is
minimized. This is because the water runs away leaving the soil adjacent to the wall with a consistent moisture content. Wall anchors are adjustable allowing them to be tightened during dry weather. When the soil dries and shrinks away from the wall leaving a gap, the anchors can now be tightened, which will pull the wall straight.
