Gloria has lived in her Sand Lake, MI home for about 40 years. She started to notice that several of the walls in her 100-year-old barn had begun to bow about 5 years ago. Recently, she noticed it’s gotten worse and was worried that barn would fall down while she was in Florida for the winter.
She called Ayers for an inspection and our crew determined that hydrostatic pressure was the main cause of the sever bowing walls. Hydrostatic pressure is a buildup of water pressure in the soil pushing against foundation walls. Years of this has caused the barn walls to collapse in on themselves, bowing the walls overtime. Our crew determined that she would need GeoLock Anchors to stabilize her barn for good.
GeoLock Wall Anchors permanently stops foundational shifting. The anchors have 3 parts. The first part is a plate on the interior foundation wall. A steel cable is drilled through the plate into the soil directed away from the home. The final part of the GeoLock Anchor is a second plate that is anchored to the other side of the cable. The cables can be tightened overtime for continued maximum stabilization.
Gloria was ecstatic with the work the Ayers crew did. We were able to help her stabilize the walls of her barn, and keep it standing for another 100 years!
