Foundation Repair Photo Album: Settling Foundation Stabilized in Pluckemin, NJ

Album Description

The owner of this Pluckemin, NJ home noticed stair-step cracks in the foundation. Foundation problems do not magically fix themselves, they have to be fixed the correct way before they get worse. Often if a problem is left to its own devices, it not only gets worse, but it gets more and more expensive to fix. Knowing this, the homeowner called Quality 1st Basement Systems for secure foundation fix that would keep the foundation from further cracks or wall failure.

Quality 1st Basement Systems installed wall anchors to stabilize and support the sinking foundation. Wall anchors are the best solution for this home because they fix the problem for good, not just temporarily. The wall anchors are connected to an internal wall plate with a steel rod. The pressure helps move the foundation wall back into place, securing it and keeping it from cracking and bowing forward. Foundation problems are often caused by the soil outside of the home expanding and pushing on the walls. Given enough time and pressure, a settling foundation can cause basement walls to cave forward! But this is no match for wall anchors, which are made out of heavy-duty galvanized steel. Installation only took two days, and afterwards the area was cleaned up and looks as good as new. Now the homeowner feels much safer and his home has a stable foundation.
