1 The Stabilizer TM Supplemental support system for sagging beams and floor joists within a crawl space Pre-drilled holes in steel plate allow for connection to beam or floor joists. Benefits Levels and stabilizes existing support beams and floor joists. Heavy-duty steel column can support vertical loads greater than 60,000 pounds. Minimal disturbance to crawlspace or surrounding property. Excavation and installation typically completed in one day. Heavy-duty adjustable 10 threaded rod. High-strength 3 diameter steel column. Column base seated in pre-cast concrete footing. No messy concrete or lengthy curing time required. Compacted crushed stone base effectively transfers load to existing soils. Professional installation by certified Grip-Tite dealers.

10 STABILIZE YOUR FOUNDATION WITHOUT DESTABILIZING YOUR BANK ACCOUNT Copyright 2010 Grip-Tite Manufacturing Company, L.L.C. All rights reserved. Printed in U.S.A. When it comes to cracked, bowed or buckling walls, many homeowners are surprised to learn that rebuilding the entire wall isn t necessary. The Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System, which has been evaluated by the International Code Council, can be used to secure and stabilize deteriorating walls. The only patented, wall anchor system, the Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System restores the structural integrity of your basement walls saving you time and money while giving you peace of mind. Have a trained, certified Grip-Tite dealer evaluate your foundation wall problems today.

11 FOUNDATION WALL REPAIR THAT DOESN T LEAVE YOUR HOME AND LAWN IN DISREPAIR Rebuilding or replacing a foundation wall involves jacking and temporarily suspending the home, an excavation around the foundation, possibly pouring a new footing and building the new wall. The Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System uses high-strength steel anchoring plates and structural anchor rods to immediately stabilize the wall and counteract pressure being exerted against the wall without the time, mess and expense of rebuilding the entire wall. Trained, certified technicians install this system by inserting the galvanized anchor rod through the wall into stable, supportive soils. An earth anchor is then attached to the rod through a vertical hole in the ground, providing solid support for the earth anchor to resist the pressures on the wall. Finally, the high-strength, steel wall plate is secured to the inside of the basement wall to instantly stabilize the wall. The entire process usually takes less than one day and your home and lawn appear virtually untouched. THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW Your home is one of the biggest investments you ll ever make. Don t risk this investment by failing to take care of a cracked or bowing wall. Whether the cracking or bowing is caused by hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil, or some other condition, it (may) needs to be evaluated now and corrected by experts in foundation repair. Contact a trained and certified Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System dealer today for a free inspection, evaluation and estimate. Protect your home, your investment and your family today.
