WallDefense Bracket

The reason poured concrete walls fail is not because they are weak. The true problem lies in the connections between the top of the wall and the home's wood framing. Even when foundation walls meet building code requirements, the forces pushing in on them can exceed the strength of these connections. Once this attachment is lost, the wall begins to crack and tip inward at the top. WallDefense brackets provide your foundation walls with multiple, direct attachments that add great strength and permanently stabilize them, even if changing soil conditions increase the pressure, or load, on them.

Why You Need It

After a home is built, changes often occur in the surrounding soil. Those changes are the primary cause of foundation settlement and bowing or leaning foundation walls. Excess moisture increases the weight of soils surrounding the home, adding to the force pushing inward on the walls. Moisture and frost may also cause soil to expand, adding to this pressure. Once the damage is done, it must be repaired and stabilized against further movement or eventual failure.
