The basement in this Clemmons, NC home had horizontal cracks running the entire length of the wall causing concern to the homeowner. The horizontal crack ran along 3 out of the 4 basement walls and the crack was showing signs of becoming larger as the wall was pushing inward. After reading online reviews, the homeowners decided to call Tar Heel Basement Systems for professional help.
The Foundation Team began the process of stabilizing the basement walls by drilling relatively small holes every few feet in the yard using a miniature excavator. The holes are used to install the Earth Anchors. The Earth Anchors are installed away from the fill soil along the home to ensure maximum stability. Holes are drilled along the basement walls that run parallel to the Earth Anchors. Anchor rods are then drilled through each of the holes that connect to the Earth Anchor and the Basement Wall Anchor System is then tightened to the appropriate weight.
The Basement Wall Anchor System permanently stabilizes the basement walls using galvanized steel rods that are connected to heavy-duty steel wall plates. The anchors will hold the wall in its current position without any further adjustment. This option is perfect for homeowners with larger yard space.
