WALL ANCHOR INSTALLATION
When your home battles through the four seasons again and again, it takes a toll. Undergoing damp, as well as completely dry cycles, causes soils to naturally expand and tighten. This can compromise the foundation of your home. Foundation King of Oregon can permanently stabilize your foundation walls, leaning, or bowed walls and foundation cracks. Call the experts today!
Homes in the Northwest constructed before the 1980s are susceptible to shifting or collapsing during an earthquake. Homes constructed more than three decades ago may need earthquake strengthening upgrades to prevent shifting or collapsing during a seismic event. Your local experts can provide proper earthquake recommendations for your home.

Signs of Bowing Walls:
- Walls tilting inward towards the top
- Walls sliding inward
- Inner bowing or bulging
- Diagonal cracking in corners
How Do Wall Anchors Work?
Wall anchors support beyond the walls of your basement. By extending beyond the walls and the hard-packed dirt beneath your home, wall anchors anchor themselves there and support the foundation wall. This stops internal motion entirely, and with time, tightening these anchors can also relocate your foundation back toward their initial position.
Wall anchors are later adjustable by the homeowner. With a few simple turns of a wrench or ratchet and socket, the homeowner themselves can gain positive correction of a bowing or leaning wall.
Benefits of Wall Anchors:
- Cost-effective solution to bowing walls
- Year-round installation
- Minimal disruption to your landscape
