Foundation Repair Photo Album: Geo-Lock Wall Anchor in Roodhouse, IL
The walls in this house developed a curve to them. The soil of the outside of the outside was creating a lot of pressure against the walls. The only thing the walls could do to relieve this pressure was to bow inward. Clearly this wasn't good for the home, so Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed to straighten out the walls and stop the bowing.
The curve in this wall was in result to the pressure from the soil on the outside.
Bowing Wall Causes Crack
When the walls start to bow in it causes the walls to crack so there can be a relief in pressure.
Once the cracks are sealed, Geo-lock wall anchors are installed to straighten out the wall.
