Baker's Waterproofing Case Studies: Foundation Bowing Repair in Friedens PA

Thursday, June 8th, 2017 by Alyssa Petrella


Janet of Friedens PA had her basement waterproofed back in 1999. Now it was time to worry about her foundation. The walls were bowing, and it was only getting worse with time. She wanted the problem fixed correctly; this was the home she planned to live in for the rest of her life. She called Baker’s after hearing about a friend’s experience with us to provide a foundation repair solution.


Service Advisor Tom gave a thorough inspection and created a repair solution the was best for Janet’s specific problem. Since every wall in the basement had foundation movement or bowing he had 20 GeoLock wall anchors installed (5 Along the 22-ft. side-facing walls, 8 along the rear 36 ft. wall, and 3 along the front). The wall anchors will provide clamping pressure to make the basement foundation able to withstand further movement. Janet was also given a tightening kit that she will use to slowly straighten the wall over time.

The project was worked on by Foreman Ken and his crew. They worked hard and installed the anchor system in less than 5 days. They faced the challenge of installing the system around a wooden deck in the back yard, and around the washer and dryer in the basement. Whether your repair is large or small, Baker’s is there to fix your foundation problem!
