Plate Anchor Installation in Iowa and Nebraska

If you have bowing or leaning basement walls in your Iowa or Nebraska home or business, this is one of the signs of foundation settlement. Bowing or leaning walls are caused by hydrostatic pressure pushing on the walls. Hydrostatic pressure is caused by excess groundwater, which causes foundation movement and causing walls to bow or lean. In order to repair your bowing walls and prevent further damage, Jerry's Waterproofing can install plate anchors. These plate anchors are used to correct several wall issues such as:Bowing wall repair by Jerry's Waterproofing

  • Bowing foundation walls
  • Rotating foundation walls
  • Bulging foundation walls
  • Cracks in foundation walls

To install plate anchors, Jerry's Waterproofing will remove a small section of sod in the yard adjacent to the affected wall. In the next step, the plate anchor is augured into the ground. A small hole is drilled through the affected wall and a rod is driven into the hole which is then connected to the plate anchor outside. Next, a wall plate is attached over the rod on the interior of the basement wall. This plate is tightened until the wall is back to its original level. The sod is then replaced and the hole is filled, leaving little mess behind. Plate anchors also strengthen the wall so that it won't bow or lean in the future.
