The best repair option for foundation wall failure is the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System. Galvanized steel rods are driven to the outside and connected to a galavnized steel Geo-Lock earth anchor. On the inside, a heavy-duty wall plate is installed. These plates are just 14" wide to allow them to fit between standard 16" studs in finished basements. The system is tightened for wall straightening.
It's always a good idea to maintain some level of access to the anchor system post-install, should any future maintenance or tightening be necessary. Wall anchor covers are available to make the anchors more discreet. In this case, the homeowner decided to drywall over the anchors and leave openings small enough to tighten the anchors over time.
