External soil conditions can exert tremendous amount of pressure on foundation walls. Kevin L.’s foundation walls had long, horizontal cracks that spanning across them which made him worry about the safety of the walls so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.
Woods installed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the cracked foundation walls. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors counteract that external soil pressure by connecting steel wall plates on the inside of the walls, as seen in the picture, to earth anchors embedded in more stable soil conditions in the yard using galvanized steel anchor rods. They permanently stabilize walls and prevent future damage.

Foreman Miguel O. and his crew solved one area by installing an exterior trench drain at the garage entrance.
When water does not drain properly, it can pool at the foundation. This happens because the backfill soil around the home is not as compact, so there are more openings for water to get into to. Since water wants to be level, when it gets into this backfill area it will find anyway possible to level. This often means coming through the foundation from cracks, gaps, holes, and through the pourous materials.
By installing an exterior drain and a discharge line, we can collect this water and direct it downhill before it has a chance to cause any problems.
Along with waterproofing with CleanSpace, WaterGuard, and a TwinPack sump pump, Dawn know is assured her basement will remain dry.
