Foundation Wall Anchor System
Bowing or buckling foundation walls can be restored to structural soundness and can be reinforced by the installation of foundation wall anchors. Foundation wall anchors can also be used to prevent deterioration of the walls’ structure, bracing it and potentially returning it to position.
Pressure from the earth against the foundation can cause cracks to form in South Dakota foundation walls. As this pressure increases beyond the load-bearing capacity of the wall the structure is forced inward and that damages the wall, weakening it and reducing the walls’ ability to support the weight of the building above it.
Foundation Supportworks GeoLock Wall Anchor System is the best, most reliable product for repairing foundation walls in South Dakota. Completely replacing foundation walls is very expensive, invasive and may not fix the underlying conditions that caused the damage in the first place. Foundation wall anchors, installed by Blackburn Basement Systems, are a space-efficient, non-disruptive and much less costly alternative to other wall bracing systems used in the industry.
The GeoLock Wall Anchor System uses interior wall plates on the interior and earth anchors on the exterior of the foundation and a steel reinforced rod to correct and reinforce foundation walls. These anchors install easily with minimal disruption to landscaping, gardens, pools and patios around the home.
There are many options for the homeowner with a basement or crawl space in South Dakota (including Aberdeen, Watertown, Sioux Falls, Miller, and Rapid City) that has cracks, bowing or buckling walls. Wall anchors are a sound choice of foundation repair systems because wall anchors do not rely on floor joint strength or any existing structure for support or to provide counter-pressure.
