Unstable soil conditions on the exterior of the foundation can exert an enormous amount of pressure on the foundation walls and cause damage like bowing and cracking. Todd G. of Troy, MO had long horizontal and stair step cracks spanning across his foundation walls. He was worried that the walls might fail if he left them much longer so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended a wall support system that included Geo-Lock Wall Anchors .
Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the cracked walls to counteract the external soil pressure. To do this, earth anchors were embedded in more stable soil conditions in the yard. They were connected to wall plates on the inside of the foundation walls with galvanized steel anchor rods. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors permanently stabilize walls in place and in most cases can straighten walls over time by tightening them during dry conditions.
