Tie Back System
If you notice that your basement walls are bowing or leaning, you are seeing the first signs of foundation failure. These symptoms indicate that your home’s foundation is shifting due to pressure in the ground around the home. Luckily, a tie back anchor system can correct leaning walls and prevent damage from getting worse over time.
Tie backs work by providing opposite pressure to the wall, canceling out the existing pressure in the soil that was causing the problems with the foundation in the first place. This is a very versatile method to straighten leaning walls, and can be used in many different situations beyond the basement. For example, this system is great for sea walls and landscape retaining walls. A tie back system also has the advantage of being a quick installation with minimal equipment needed.
