 Channel anchors offer a proven solution to the noticeable signs of foundation damage, such as cracking walls, sticking doors, or uneven floors. 

What Are Channel Anchors? 

Channel anchors are steel bracing systems that stabilize bowing or shearing basement walls permanently. The system features anchors driven into the ground on the foundation’s exterior. The anchors then connect to steel channel brackets mounted to the basement walls using threaded anchor rods. 

The channel anchors span from floor to ceiling and are bolted to the concrete floor for maximum structural support. By bracing your foundation walls against stable soil, channel anchors counteract destructive soil pressure and moisture damage. They also allow the potential to straighten walls back to their original upright position over time. 

Signs You Need Channel Anchors 

Channel anchors are recommended if you notice common signs of foundation deterioration: 

Don’t ignore minor foundation issues; they could develop into major structural problems. Channel anchors offer a proven solution to stabilize your home before extensive repairs become necessary. 

Why Channel Anchors Are Crucial 

It’s crucial to address bowing foundation walls immediately before further deterioration occurs. Ongoing soil pressure against unstable walls causes damage to intensify without proper structural bracing. 

Delaying repairs also enables water intrusion through the cracks, leading to mold growth and efflorescence. Severely compromised walls even run the risk of collapse. 

Channel anchors reinforce your home’s foundation, preventing catastrophic damage. We recommend channel anchors as a permanent solution to stabilize walls and give you peace of mind.
