Vertical wall braces are a tried-and-true repair for bowing or leaning basement walls. Over the years, we have installed thousands of Spartan Wall Braces with outstanding results. The specialized vertical steel beam is connected to the concrete floor below and to the floor joist assembly above, to utilize the massive resistance of your structure to prevent further inward wall movement.
Internal bracing is the most Common Structural Repair because it is less expensive than external solutions, it is quick to install, does not require external landscaping disruption and come with a 25-year warranty tied to the lifetime of the floor joists.
Helical Tieback Anchors
Similar to a Helical Pier, the Helical tieback Anchor system is installed to a specific torque and depth to achieve a pre-designed capacity. Minimal to no excavation is required outside of the wall to be repaired.
The advantages of Helical Tiebacks are No impact on floor joists, can be used with a walkout basement, allows for gradual wall realignment, does not require maintenance or tightening, less impact on the external soil and comes with a life of structure warranty which is backed by Ram Jack’s National Warranty Trust.
Crack Injection Is a fast efficient way to stop water leaks from specific cracks. Material is pressure injected through the entire thickness of the wall to form a watertight seal. Urethane injections are typically a two-part component that mix and expand into the crevices, capillary cracks, and micro-fissures of concrete to form a watertight compression seal. Because urethane remains flexible after curing, this is an ideal material for our area's seasonal changes, which causes soil movement and stress on your foundation. Crack injection is the ideal choice when an economical repair is necessary.
Full Injection Penetration
Urethane injection stops water from entering cracks, may be painted, is inexpensive and the repair is quick.
Carbon fiber straps combine the technologies of high strength carbon and Kevlar in a woven mesh to provide tensile reinforcement to existing walls (essentially improving the strength of a wall as if it had more steel in it).
The advantages of Carbon Fiber Straps are their flat profile, can be painted or

Why Basement Walls Lean or Bow
Ensure your home and family are always safe! Keeping your basement healthy and usable is vital to the overall value of your home. Bowing basement walls, cracks in basement walls, and leaking basement walls can all be signs of major structural problem. Water intrusion and damage can be detrimental to your home for many reasons. Water intrusion can ruin furniture and belongings, lead to mold growth and unpleasant odors, and may even result in flooding conditions. If your basement smells damp you may have a substantial problem. Your home is a significant investment, and it is important to ensure its health and safety today and in the future. The longer you neglect these issues, the more costly future repairs will be.
There are several reasons that a basement wall will bow or lean. Most common causes of basement wall failure are Clay soils that expand and contract as the moisture in the ground increases and decreases.
Hydrostatic pressure, which is an accumulation of water in the soil surrounding the foundation wall that is exerting pressure against the wall.
Frost in the soil next to the foundation that can apply pressure to the wall.
Soil will naturally compact with the seasons causing variations in pressure against your basement walls.
The extent of the leaning or bowing will determine the best method of repair. Have our Spartan Ram Jack experts evaluate your foundation and make the right recommendation for your specific needs.

The Spartan Wall Anchor is a proven, versatile, engineered solution to bowing or leaning basement walls. Our wall anchor can be used to sustain your basement walls whether they are made of concrete block, concrete, clay tile, or even stone! It is a great alternative to the costly replacement of your basement walls. The Spartan Wall Anchor is a specially designed system that utilizes the resistance of the earth outside your basement to firmly hold your walls in place.
The system consists of three main elements: An inner wall plate, an outer soil anchor, and a connecting rod which allows for subsequent tightening of the assembly.
This tightening, over time, may allow you to regain some of the inward movement your wall has experienced. The Spartan Anchor’s low-profile wall bracket gives you great flexibility to complete your basement finish without the obvious appearance of a repair.
This solution is less invasive to the interior, does not impact floor joists, can be used with a walkout basement and comes with a 25 year warranty.
Engineered Plate Earth Anchors
Lifetime Earth Anchors, also known as Concrete Earth Anchors, are similar to engineered earth anchors. Instead of Anchor Plates, the Anchor is encased in a poured concrete block under the ground.
This solution will hold a more massive wall, does not require maintenance or tightening, can be used with walkout basements, allows for gradual wall realignment, and comes with a lifetime warranty.

Typically, once a wall starts to move or bow, it will continue to degrade until the wall fails.
Signs that your basement wall is failing.
Diagonal cracking on the interior
Horizontal cracking in the concrete or block
Cracking near the corners on the exterior
Ruptures or protrusions at the beam pocket
Visible leaning of the basement wall
Visible bowing of the basement wall
