This home on the westside of Cincinnati had experienced foundation anchorage issues. The homeowner hired a licensed structural engineer with Buyers Protection Group for assessment and designs to remedy the situation.
In order to address this home’s foundation failure, Hughes Construction Company installed a foundation anchorage system designed by the structural engineer. This application consisted of 45 steel angles applied to the front, left and rear walls of the home’s foundation. Reference photos below showing angles anchoring the foundation walls to the homes framing. This remedy will stabilize the home’s foundation and prevent further movement of these walls.
It is important to note that when addressing foundation concerns the first step should always be consulting a structural engineer. These professionals will assess the unique situation your home is encountering. Then based on their findings they will determine the best path forward to meet your home’s needs.
