    Ryan, Larry and Chris were the initial crew that did the new sump pit, sump pumps, discharge line and Waterguard. They were great and worked trying to get everything finished before the storms came. They didn't quite make it and today Mike and Tyler came to finish hooking up the downspout to the discharge line. Everyone was great. All polite and hardworking.

    Geo-Lock Wall Anchors Permanently Stabilize Foundation Walls in Marthasville, MO

    Fabien D. of Marthasville, MO had long vertical cracks that spanned his foundation walls. He’d tried patching the cracks before but new ones formed and were allowing water to get in and damage his drywall so he called Woods Basements Systems. Woods recommended installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors alongside a waterproofing system.

    Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the cracked walls. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors counteract the external soil pressure that damages walls. They permanently stabilize walls in place by connecting earth anchors embedded in the yard to wall plates on the inside of the walls using galvanized steel anchor rods. They can also straight walls over time by tightening them during dry periods.

    Cracks in foundation walls can be a sign that pressure from unstable soil on the outside of the wall is causing it to fail. Christina and James B. of Wentzville, IL had cracks in their foundation walls that they’d attempted to patch but the cracked had reopened and new ones formed so they called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.

    The Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed on the cracked walls. They counteract the pressure from the soil by connecting earth anchors embedded in more stable soil in the yard to wall plates on the inside of the foundation walls using galvanized steel anchor rods. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors permanently stabilize foundation walls and can straighten the walls in most cases. As shown in the picture, the steel wall plates can also be covered with optional wall anchor covers.

    Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed along the cracked, bulging walls. They counteract the external soil pressure that damages walls. Galvanized steel anchor rods are driven through the walls and connected to steel earth anchors embedded in stable soil conditions in the yard. Steel wall plates are attached on the inside of the foundation walls and tightened into place. They permanently stabilize walls and can even straighten walls over time by tightening the anchors during dry periods.

    Because concrete-block foundation walls feature dozens of seams and individual pieces, they are particularly susceptible to cracking and bowing. If left unaddressed, cracks can grow very large, leading to water issues and threatening total wall collapse. Because of this, it is very important to take action as soon as wall damage is noticed. A Woods Basement Systems team installed several PowerBrace beam supports in this Bethalto, Illinois basement to support the walls and prevent further cracking and bowing.
