Job Stories From Scott County, IL
Wall Anchor in Manchester, MO

This week Mellissa & Dan D had there wall realigned back to its original location by having the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System installed. In the past they had contacted us here at Woods Basement Systems to come out and inspect their wall that had several cracks in it from the hydrostatic pressure pushing up against it. Woods sent out an inspector to take a look at what was going on and to give his professional opinion to what system was going to do the best job for them.  As stated above, Mellissa & Dan went ahead and purchased the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System to have the cracks in the wall closed up and the wall straightened back up.

A production crew was sent out lead by Jeremy Raby to have the work done correctly. When looking to fix a wall painting over the cracks in the wall is never the best idea due to the fact that the water is going to find a new way through the wall. With the wall anchors tightened on and in place, the original staircase cracks as well and horizontal cracks closed right up. Mellissa & Dan took a look at their wall and were amazed with how the cracks they were so worried about had closed up. If you know or are in need of wall re alignment and would like your home inspected, give us a call here at Woods Basement Systems.

Radon is a radioactive carcinogen and the second leading cause of lung cancer so Lena called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Matt S. recommended installing a Radon Mitigation System.

Passive mitigation systems use the same system of pipes to ventilate radon away from the home but are not always reliable in keeping radon levels before 4pCi/l. In this active system,the pipe is connected to a fan in the attic that runs continuously, without making noise or using much power, to the gas safely away from the home.

Lena K. is relieved that she no longer has to worry about her home’s air safety or the hazards of radon gas.
