Are you dealing with serious structural basement problems, like walls leaning, tipping over or caving in? Avoid partial short-term repairs. It’s time to push back and recover cracked & bowing basement walls using the strongest basement wall recovery solution in the industry. Olshan’s patent pending Wall Push Back Solution is a comprehensive approach to total basement wall recovery. Our durable approach includes:

Anchored Carbon Fiber Straps Installed on the basement interior, Olshan’s carbon fiber straps are anchored at the top and bottom of damaged basement walls.

  • 4x stronger than steel
  • Top anchor post-tensioned
  • Unlike other carbon fiber systems, the top anchor is mechanically fastened to the rim joist, not the sill plate to engage the floor
  • This provides a stronger, safer, more durable defense against future wall movement
  • Bottom anchor: 5x thicker and 125x stiffer than competing anchors
  • Uses a dual-leg solution engineered to achieve a 200% safety factor
  • Open grid technology

Olshan keeps your basement structurally sound and looking great. Beautify your basement with WallShield for a finished look!

Left unrepaired, some homeowners have had to replace entire walls. A thorough and proper Wall Push Back Solution addressing these issues is the surest way to help remedy any issues your foundation may have.
