I am in the process of buying a home. The home is 8 yrs old. During the home inspection a crack in the morter joint at the frost line was noted. The wall is bowed approx 1/2 inch at the crack. We had estimates from two companies. The first company specialized in wall anchors. The second company specialized in steel beams, both methods used to reinforce the wall. The wall anchors cost $2400 for 6. The steel beams cost $1050 for 3. Is there a recommendation on which method is better. I am inclined to go for the wall anchors. Is this the better choice. Any suggestions?
