Wall Anchors are used when the foundation has sustained fairly significant damage and the option to excavate outside the home is available. This Stillwater home had wooden foundation walls which were not standing up the the pressures the ground around them was putting on them. To remedy this situation we needed to drive a rod through the wall and several feet away from the home where it is anchored in place with an earth anchor. This anchor grabs hold in the solid ground further away form the home and gives it a solid pulling point which the wall can be adjusted back toward. This additional structural integrity for the wall ensures that the wall will move no further and can even be adjusted back into place. DBS works on these types of problems most often with concrete block, poured, and stone foundations, but our solutions work just as well for wood foundations.
