Wall Anchor Concrete Solutions in Pennsylvania

Shifting foundations can be the cause of many different structural issues in your Pennsylvania home. When the soil that surrounds the concrete foundation starts to shift due to soil shrinkage, erosion, or excessive hydrostatic pressure due to a high water table, it will cause the foundation itself to shift and move. This can lead to crack formation and many other problems, such as sticking windows and doors, gaps and spaces, uneven floors, and bowing or leaning foundation walls. That is why Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing provides wall anchor options to anchor concrete foundations in place.

Wall anchors are designed to pull the shifting foundation back to its original position. There are several steps that we take to carefully install these devices and restore the concrete foundation in your home:

  1. Steps to Anchor Concrete in Pennsylvania HomesThe first step is to embed the durable galvanized earth anchor into the deeper layers of soil near the exterior of your foundation wall. The anchor is installed deep enough and far enough from the wall to give the foundation the support it needs.
  2. The anchor is then connected to your foundation wall using a steel rod and a wall plate. This is why wall anchors are often called plate anchors, or wall plate anchors.
  3. The plate itself clamps onto the wall to provide pressure and connects it to the anchor in the ground, which pulls it into place. This is how we anchor concrete walls using wall anchors sunk into the ground.
  4. The rod can be tightened gradually to pull the wall and the entire concrete back into position.
