Push Pier System

Our Push Pier Foundation System reaches greater depths than any other foundation piering system available. Steel tube sections are hydraulically driven through industrial stength foundation brackets down to the proper load-bearing strata or solid bedrock. Quiet, vibration free hydraulic equipment is used to install the Basement Solution’s Push Pier. All installation equipment is portable and can be manually transported to the job site and into position. There is no need for use of heavy equipment and our foundation repair is usually completed in days, not weeks. American Basement Solutions, your local foundation repair experts, will permanently secure the foundation of your commercial building or home.

Wall Anchor

American Basement Solutions stabilizes cracked & bowed basement walls with our proven, engineered wall anchor system. When hydrostatic pressure builds up around your basement walls, or the soil expands with water saturation, it can push against your wall and cause bowing. Wall bowing can be corrected by using wall anchors that are driven into stable soil out away from your basement wall. They are connected to heavy duty, steel wall plates with a ¾” tie rod and secured with nuts. The anchors will hold the wall in its current condition and have the ability to be tightened down further when the soil outside the wall shrinks. The installation can be quickly installed using handheld equipment and requires minimal excavation or disturbance to your lawn.

Wall Beam

Our most economical solution to stopping bowing walls is our wall beam system. The steel wall beam is attached to the floor joist system at the top and into the concrete floor at the bottom. The steel beam will hold the wall in its current condition. Wall beams are installed also in situations where outside soil conditions are not suitable for wall anchors.
