Walls that are tilting or bowing are both unsightly and dangerous. This type of damage is often seen in the basement and/or foundation walls, and is usually caused by the soil surrounding the structure. Clay soil, for example, is a typical type of soil that has the ability to absorb a lot of water. Exposure to liquid causes the soil to expand and push against your wall. Once the soil dries and shrinks, it leaves a large gap between the wall and the ground.

As this process continues, your walls will weaken and could eventually collapse from all the stress and pressure – exposing your home to different foreign debris. One way to fortify your walls is to have them anchored, and at KC Waterproofing, we are experts at this.

Strengthening Walls with the GeoLock®

Foundation repairs should be left to professionals who have the proper equipment to strengthen your walls. There are a number of ways in which we can approach foundation problems, but if you want something that can be done any time of the year, then we recommend that you anchor your walls with the GeoLock®.

The GeoLock® system is made from heavy-duty, galvanized steel, with one side embedded into the soil and the other installed onto the wall. With this setup, your bowing or tilting walls will straighten overtime and gradually fortify itself each time it is raised. This system is a better alternative because it provides you with the following benefits:

  • Year-round service
  • Fast installment time (usually finishes in one day)
  • Does not severely damage your lawn and landscaping
  • Has the ability to straighten your walls
  • Easy to conceal
  • Does not need any future maintenance
  • Boost/restores your property’s value
  • Prevents your walls from further tilting
  • Does not require any floor joists for support

Wall Anchor Installation Process

When you decide to have the wall anchor system installed, KC Waterproofing will perform the following steps.

Step 1: Carefully remove sod and mark an earth anchor hole.

Step 2: Small holes are drilled through the wall so that the rod can be driven out.

Step 3: Install the earth anchor and attach it to the rod.

Step 4: Attach a wall plate to seat the earth anchor.

Step 5: Fill the hole and replace the sod.

Step 6: Tighten the anchors to improve wall strength.
