These block foundation walls in the basement of this home in Wittenberg, WI were showing signs of failure. There were cracks along the mortar joints and the walls were bowing inward. This was likely caused by the hydrostatic pressure from the wet soil surrounding the home's foundation.
To permanently stabilize this home's foundation walls, Sure-Dry Basement Systems installed their Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchor System.
Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors extend out to the stable, hard-packed soil beyond your home, anchoring themselves there and bracing the foundation wall. This stops inward movement entirely -- and over time, tightening these anchors can even move your foundation walls back to their original position.
Foundation wall anchors have been used successfully to stabilize and straighten foundation walls since the late 1970s. This repair system has an excellent track record in residential and commercial structures. In fact, in 1992, wall anchor systems were identified by a Chief Appraiser for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as the most effective means of stabilizing bowing foundation walls.
