A barn owner reached out to DBS regarding their block walls. The walls were beginning to bow considerably, and the individual wanted to find a solution to prevent further damages. After thorough inspection, it was concluded that the barn would need to have GeoLock® Wall Anchors installed to help add support. These are galvanized steel anchors that are embedded in to undisturbed soil on the exterior side of the wall, and are attached to an anchor on the interior side through a metal rod. This provides optimal stabilization for the wall, and can even help pull it back in to the original positioning.
The solution in this situation was simple, but much needed. The customer had noticed the crack forming in their wall and understood they would need to do something before the problem had worsened. In this part of the home the customer only needed two PowerBraces to stabilize the wall. This simple solution provides the customer with a permanent solution that didn't cause a mess or additional clutter in the room.
This customer was having problems with support for their main level. The jack stands that were being used were not proving effective in supporting the home from the basement.
