This system provides a quick and easy installation, it is portable, and can be installed in contained areas. We can restore the wall back to it’s original position and stabilize it against future movement.
Mid America Piering’s Concrete Wall Anchor
The rod is inserted through the foundation or retaining wall and anchored with a steel bracket on either end of the rod.
The bracket located inside is secured with a bolt and will be adjusted to continuously straighten the wall as much as structurally possible. The other end is a stationary steel anchor and held in place with a concrete deadmen designed to hold the anchor in place.
This system will give your wall the stability it needs and prevent future damage.

Shoring is used to suppor the housing frame and divert the weight of the adjacent walls and floors away from the foundation wall.
Steel beams which extend from the floor joist to the footing are installed to stabilize the foundation wall.
In addition, fractures in the foundation walls and concrete are repaired with an epoxy to seal and bond broken sections.
Proper drainage is installed to reduce hydrostatic pressure, preventing future damage and deterioration of foundation walls. Wall Stress Bracing is an economical solution to stabilizing deterioration and movement in foundation walls.
