Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchor System

Does your homes foundation walls show signs of damage? Have you noticed cracking, bowing or buckling in the walls?

The most common cause of damage to foundation walls comes from soil pressure outside of the wall. Moisture from rain and melting snow can cause the soils around the home to expand, putting large amounts of pressure on the foundation walls, causing them to crack or break.

But what can be done?

One traditional repair method is Wall Replacement which can be very expensive, highly disruptive, and will not likely address the problem meaning the new walls are very likely top bow and break again.
