GeoLock® Wall Anchors are working together with PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing Beams to stabilize this partially underground barn in Fall Creek, WI.
This partially underground barn in Fall Creek, WI is taking damage from increased soil pressure. Soil expands over time and can cause concrete to crack and bow.
This barn foundation is experiencing deep cracks and bowing along portions of its walls.
These PowerBrace® Wall Support beams are working hard to keep this barn stable without taking away from usable space.
This photo shows many cracks in the foundation of this barn. DBS stepped in at the right time before this space took more damage which can be irreversible.
This barn was built partially underground and expanding soil along the perimeter was causing foundational cracks and wall failure. GeoLock® Wall Anchors corrected the problem and worked great with PowerBrace™ Wall Support Beams to permanently stabilize this foundation.
These homeowners in Fall Creek, WI reached out to DBS for help stabilizing the foundation of their barn. The barn is partially underground and overtime expanding soil was putting increased pressure on the walls resulting in cracking, bowing and an unsafe failing foundation.
Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen went to the property and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the work. To correct the failing walls multiple stabilization methods were utilized. Four GeoLock® Wall Anchors were placed underground outside of the barn and connected with galvanized steel rods to anchors inside the barn. Additionally, four PowerBrace® Wall Bracing beams were placed on the walls to prevent any future bowing from occurring. A DBS foreman and his crew successfully installed the products and saved this structure.
This barn is now safe, stable and will not any have future wall failure.
