A homeowner needed better wall stabilzation for the foundation of their home. DBS went in and installed the GeoLock® Wall Anchor System to help support the wall and hopefully straighten it back out. The photos show the yard and foundation wall before and after the anchors were embedded within the soil.

These homeowners reached out to DBS for help stabilizing their bowing foundation walls. 

Design Specialist, Royce Bunn went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the work. Increased soil pressure over time has caused these walls to bow. GeoLock® wall anchors are embedded in stable soil away from your foundation wall and are then connected to steel anchors with long galvanized rods. These are tightened to stabilize shifting walls and can be adjusted over time in an attempt to bring the walls back to level. Foreman Zach Royer and his production crew worked hard to install the GeoLock® system. 

This home is now healthy, safe, and stable all year round!

Job Stories From Makinen, MN
Home Stabilization Project in Makinen, MN

A cabin in Makinen, MN needed maintenance to make sure the home was stable. DBS sent a design specialist to see what work was needed to create a safe environment in the home. DBS concluded that we needed to remove the existing structure of the home and install our own pier system into the foundation, the goal being to restore the sinking floors, and home back to its original placement. Our installation works to make sure all our clients live in safe, stable homes and cabins, DBS installed helical pier stabilization system and lifted the foundation for our clients. We’ve included a pre-production photo of the cabin that needed to be repaired. In the photos, you can see the way that the flooring is sagging beneath the foundation.

 

Home Stabilization Project in Makinen, MN - Photo 1
Foundation Support Job in Makinen, MN

A home in Makinen, MN had an issue with the foundation. The basement wall had started to cave in and this would cause water to leak slowly in from the outside. This can be a major problem that has lasting effects from both the bowing wall and leaking water damage. A proper solution was much needed for the homeowner. They were able to reach DBS and have a Design Specialist come out to provide a free, no-obligation for the service. It was concluded that the foundation wall would need the installation of the GeoLock® Wall Anchor System. This service is comprised of galvanized steel earth anchors that are embedded into undisturbed soil on the outside of a foundation wall. The anchor is then attached to one end of a steel rod which connects with another anchor installed on the interior portion of the wall. Once the ground is backfilled, it creates a force that helps pull the wall and stabilizes it from any futher bowing movements. The GeoLock® Wall Anchor System is a certified solution to foundation problems, and can prevent future issues you may find with damaged walls.
