This home had a cracked and bowing wall. We stabilized the wall with 5 Grip Tite wall anchors.  The first step of this process is to measure out 12 feet from the home and space out the anchors properly. Step 2  Auger the holes as seen in the first picture. Step 3 Drive the rods from inside the basement to the augered holes. Step 4 Attach the large anchor plates on the interior and exterior. Step 5 Tighten the anchor assemblies  to 80 foot pounds of pressure.  Step 6 Backfill and tamp the soil back into the augured holes. Step 7 Replace the sods that were cut before the holes got augured and do a final tightening of the wall anchors.
