Problems with Your Basement Wall Southwest Marietta, GA
A residential house.

Have you noticed cracks, bulging, bowing or tilting in your basement wall? Your foundation’s integrity is vital to the structure of your home. Safety and your property value are in jeopardy when there are signs that the strength of a basement wall has been compromised.

Signs Your Home Is in Trouble

You may have noticed drywall cracks, difficulty with doors and windows, gaps around windows and doors, sloping or sagging floors, a drooping or bowed roof, exterior walls that tilt or bow out or cabinets that are separating from the wall. Such things are warning flags that your home’s foundation needs immediate attention.

Another early sign of a problem that you may have noticed are minor cracks in your basement wall. Not all cracks are indicative of a structural issue. Some cracks may only be a moisture intrusion or leak problem. Cracks leaking moisture are easier to identify than cracks of a structural nature. Some cracks are both a leak and a structural issue. Only a foundation professional or structural engineer can tell the difference.

A foundation professional or engineer will look for additional signs that indicate if your home is in trouble, such as damage or cracks to your sill plate and studs that sit on the damaged wall. Additionally, framing on the offending basement wall may have shifted or moved, causing other problems.

Ignoring The Problem

A compromised basement wall will not right itself and will continue to deteriorate. Any delay in addressing this issue will cost you exponentially. Acting promptly will save you money and stress.

Timely action when the wall is only cracked or slightly bowed, bulging or tilted requires a minimally invasive solution. A basement wall with a more significant deformity will cost more and cause more disruption.

Left untreated, your home will be severely compromised and will endanger the safety of the occupants. A collapsed basement wall can split flooring, snap beams and joists, crack drywall and break pipes at the very least. You may need to relocate during repairs, depending on the severity of the damage.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
