Our system consists of an interior wall plate, exterior soil anchor, connecting steel rod, and hardware designed to stabilize and support weak or failing basement walls.

HOW THEY WORK
During times of heavy rain, the soil around the foundation of your home can become saturated. When this happens, it puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the walls of your basement foundation. If that pressure exceeds the amount of force those walls can handle, that’s when you begin to experience foundation failure. This is where our foundation wall anchors come in!
During the installation process, the foundation wall anchors are extended past the unstable soil to hard, suitable soil beyond. There they anchor themselves into the soil and provide your home with a bracing force. This serves to counteract the push from the wet, unstable soil. Once these basement wall anchors are in place, they can be slowly tightened over time to correct the damage and move your foundation walls back into their original place.
Installation should only be done by a certified Grip-Tite installer to ensure the project is completed to the best possible standard. Call our crew today for more information and to start the certification process so you can give your customers the best!
