Bowing Wall Repaired in Joppa, MD

This basement had a bowing wall, causing cracking and separation of the block. We installed the PowerBrace wall stabilization system to permanently stabilize this home's foundation wall. It comes with a 25-year warranty against further bowing, tipping or shearing. In addition, this system has the ability to be tightened periodically over time, putting reverse pressure on the bowing wall which helps to straighten it.  We also installed ThermalWall vapor barrier to keep moisture out and the warm air in.

Elkton Bowing Foundation Wall Repair

Cinder block wall often fail due to the weight of the soil, the weight of the water in the soil, and the pressure created by clay expansion when it gets wet. The result is that the walls bow inward and will eventually collapse unless repaired. 

The GeoLock Wall Anchor System is the best solution for bowed walls. This dead-man anchoring system is capable of reversing the pressure and stabilizing the wall. Each anchor is attached to a 9-foot threaded rod that extends into the exterior soil, away from the house. This rod is attached to an exterior anchor plate. With the interior bolts that are placed on threaded rod are tightened, it creates reverse pleasure. This home in Elkton needed 10 anchors to repair the wall.
