Pressure from soil can cause damage to foundation walls over time and cause them to tilt, bow and crack. In Rose Ann H.’s case, the garage of her Moscow Mill, MO home was partially underground. The earth on the outside of the wall shown in the before picture had put pressure on it and caused it to tilt in at the top and form cracks on the ceiling of her garage so she called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors counteract the soil pressure by embedding earth anchors in more stable soil in the yard and connecting them to steel wall plates in the inside of the walls shown in the after picture, using steel anchor rods. The anchor rods are tightened to permanently stabilize the walls and prevent future tilting and damage. The anchor rods can also be tightened during dry weather conditions for the opportunity to straighten the wall.

Fast and Effective Concrete Lifting and Leveling

The major flaw of concrete is that the ground that it was poured on top of will inevitably shift and sink over time. In the states of Illinois and Missouri sinking concrete is all too common which is why our company has gone to great lengths to develop fast and effective concrete lifting and leveling solutions. PolyLevel is a revolutionary product that is minimally invasive and not only lifts and levels concrete but also stabilizes it. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab, then the PolyLevel polymer is poured into the holes. After only about 15 minutes the polymer is dry and the concrete is ready to be walked and even driven on. This concrete lifting and leveling technique is faster, less disruptive and arguably more effective than mud jacking which is the procedure PolyLevel replaces. To removed tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling estimate contact us today!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios

Cracked, Bowing Moscow Mills, MO Walls Supported With GeoLock

Brian G. of Moscow Mills, Missouri was concerned with the state of several of his basement walls. Over the years, small cracks in the surface had grown into large fractures and one of the walls was bowing inward. This damage caused Brian to worry about a possible collapse, and he was eager to have the problem taken care of.

In order to reinforce the damaged walls, a Woods Basement Systems team led by foreman Jeremy installed several GeoLock wall supports. These work by connecting heavy anchors buried deep in the firm soil far from the home to steel plates affixed to the interior surface of the walls, effectively pulling them outward over time. Brian can rest easy now that his walls are secured. 

Badly Settled Foundation in Moscow Mills, MO Leveled With Push Piers

Tom H. of Moscow Mills, Missouri called Woods Basement Systems out of concern for his foundation. His home was severely settled, leading to cracking around doorways and windows and in the exterior brickwork. Knowing that the problem would only get worse, he was in need of immediate help. 

Foreman Miguel and his team got to work quickly, installing 12 Low-Profile Push Piers underneath the foundation. These galvanized steel supports are inserted into small holes in the ground and adjusted to raise the home back to level. They then remain in place to give additional support into the future life of the home.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors Installed in Moscow Mills, MO

Moscow Mills, Missouri homeowners Maureen and John had had cracks in the walls of their poured concrete basement walls for awhile. The cracks ran from the windows and were either horizontal or stairstep. When a crack formed in the upstairs living area the decided it was time to give Woods Basement Systems a call. System Design Specialist Thomas W. developed a plan to get their foundation sturdy. 

Foreman Jeremy R. and his crew installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors in the two walls of the basement. These cracks were being caused by the pressure of the dirt and water outside the home. Overtime it had caused the walls to bow and crack. 

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are the perfect solution for this becasue they provide the resistance needed by the wall. By drilling a steel rod back into the inactive soil and attaching it to a steel anchor placed out there and a steel plate anchor on the interior wall, the rod can use the force of the Earth to straighten the wall. As it needs more resistance the rods can be tightened from inside the home to return the wall to its original poisition. 

Maureen and John can now rest assured their home will be sturdy for decades to come.

Finding Comfort in Moscow Mills

Tim was living a very uncomfortable life in his Moscow Mills home. His first floor and master bedroom were drafty, the insulation from the laundry room was filling soffits, which restricted air flow, and on top of all that, Tim was basically paying to live in discomfort through his energy bills.

Dr. Energy Saver was on the case. By using the Stack Effect principle, where air leaking out of the home causes air to in, we were able to see that unwanted air was being sucked into the basement and the good conditioned air was escaping from the attic. Dr. Energy Saver installed rim joists and use spray foam in the basement to create a thermal barrier against air leaking in to reduce the first floor draft and used similar tactics to handle the comfort abilities and energy costs in the home.

Tim can now live in complete contentment thanks to Dr. Energy Saver.
