Causes of Lateral/Inward Movement On a Foundation Wall:

  • Soil pressure - when the soil is saturated with water, it will expand and push on the foundation wall

  • Year home was built and codes applied at that time
  • Heavy rains causing Hydrostatic Pressure
  • And Many more
All of these problems cause pressure on the outside of the wall, with nothing to hold it on the inside.

The Fix

JLB Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing installs an Anchor System that gives in the inside of the wall support need to fight back and hold the soil pressures and stabilize the wall from moving inward any further. If needed, JLB Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing can also straighten the wall before the Anchor System is installed. JLB Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing will install a steel C - channel on the inside of the wall that is attached to a steel rod that runs out to stable soil. The steel rod is then embedded in a continuous trench of concrete is the wall anchor point; it provides tremendous weight and surface area for the Anchor to act as a counterbalance for support for the broken foundation wall.

When you are getting bids for this type of work, ask about warranties and ask to "see" them before you commit to buy. Some warranties are not what they seem. Workmanship and material warranties DO NOT COVER against future lateral movement on your foundation walls.
