Geo-Lock Anchors Fight Soil Pressure in Grayling, MI
The mother and daughter-in-law of this Grayling, MI home called after they noticed the large horizontal crack running down the center of their basement wall. Large horizontal cracks like the one seen in the before picture are one of the common signs that a wall is bowing inwards. The plates in the after photo, that partially cover the crack, are one of the ways the Ayers crew stop the bowing motion. Steel rods are connected to the center of the plate and extend to Earth anchors placed outside of the home in more distant and dependable soil. The anchors will pull tight on the rods to counter the pressure of the expanding soil and keep the wall from collapsing on itself. With our Geo-Lock Anchor system in place, both mom and daughter can rest easy without fear of any more problems occurring to their foundation.
Wall Anchors Stabilize Bowing Wall in Grayling, MI
Bonnie called because the block walls in her father-in-law's basement were cracked and bowing. We used a combination of PowerBraces and wall anchors to stabilize the walls; as each installation is tightened over time, we hope to straighten the walls.
Bowing Wall Straightened & Strengthened in Grayling, MI
Randall called to address a 3/4" crack in the block wall of his basement. When a wall starts bowing to the degree that cracks this large open up, you start to wonder just how long it well be before the wall completely fails. The good news for Randall was that there is an easy fix that will not only keep the wall from getting worse but can potentially straighten the wall over time.
With our wall anchor system, Geo-Lock earth anchors are burried in the ground away from the foundation wall on the exterior of the home and are then connected to low-profile steel wall plates on the interior of the home by a steel rod. This holds the wall in place and can even be tightened over time during dry periods to potentially straighten the wall until it reaches its original position. These anchors worked great for this basement because obstructions like pipes and conduits are not generally obstacles to the installation and the only impact on the interior of the home is a 1" hole that is drilled in the basement wall for the steel rods.
