Photo Album: Winston-Salem, NC - Bowing Basement Walls Stabilized with Basement Wall Anchors
This home in suburban Winston-Salem had been experiencing basement wall bowing due to soil settling and changes in soil density. The naturally strong hydrostatic pressure at the base of the home paired with a constant cycle of extreme North Carolina weather had caused the top half of the cinder block wall to start tilting outward. The homeowner attempted to mediate this problem with wooden braces but it only worsened. In order to increase the property's value before listing it for sale, the homeowner gave Tar Heel Basement Systems a call to fix the problem once and for all. Josh Watson and his crew installed four Basement Wall Anchors to pull the wall back to its correct position and keep it there for years to come.
