Structural Repair

Designed to fix bowing basement walls

Bowing in basement walls is usually the result of hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding the home. Clay soil, typically found around a home’s foundation, can be very absorbent. Whenever it rains, that clay soil quickly absorbs the moisture and swells up. When that soil swells, it puts tremendous pressure on your basement walls. This pressure is known as hydrostatic pressure, and 9/10 is the cause of your bowing basement walls.

For Summit Basement Company, bowed wall repair is easy for our trained and knowledgeable professionals. If your home has a bowing or leaning basement wall, contact us as soon as possible to stop the damage from getting any worse.

Wall Anchor Tie Backs | Summit Basement Company | Akron OH

Wall Anchor Tie-Backs

Wall Anchor Tie-Backs are large, screw-like implements installed through your foundation wall, adjacent to the soil. They secure your wall by providing opposite pressure that cancels out the hydrostatic pressure in the soil.

Carbon Fiber Structural Repair | Summit Basement Company | Akron OH

Carbon Fiber Stabilization

Similar to steel beam supports – except the beams are replaced by carbon fiber straps (a material created by the US Military) that are stronger than steel and weigh a fraction of a steel beam.

Crack Injection Structural Repair | Summit Basement Company | Akron OH

Crack Injection

In some cases, the basement wall may only show superficial cracking and not warrant more extensive corrections. For these cases, resin crack injection will seal up cracks to prevent water intrusion and provide integrity.
