Baker's Waterproofing Case Studies: Wall Repair in Stahlstown, PA

Monday, April 9th, 2018 by Mallory Finch

Challenge

A homeowner in Stahlstown, PA bought a house with unstable garage walls. Since he purchased the property, he identified that the problem has only gotten worse.

The wall had bowed up to 3 inches in some areas and noticeable cracks developed between the concrete blocks.

Our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialist, Jesse Pitcock, inspected the large garage. While the ceilings were at least 20 feet tall, the block wall was 7.5 feet tall and the side wall dropped down to 0 due to the slope of the hill. Jesse proposed that we install 6 wall anchors on the side wall and 11 channel anchors on the other to stabilize the bowing, leaning garage walls.

Solution

Our Geo-Lock wall anchor system and Geo-Lock channel anchor system immediately and permanently stabilized the structure.

Our crew, led by Foreman Dave Allen, arrived at the home to install our patented, proven foundation solutions. Heavy-duty earth anchors were embedded in stable soil away from the wall, and were then connected to steel channel anchors with long, galvanized rods. The anchors will hold the wall securely in its current position without any further adjustment. A unique benefit of the system includes the ability to tighten the anchors during dry seasons.

Dave and his crew installed 17 wall-stabilizing anchors in just 3 days.
