The Dry Guys team arrives at the home and inspects the foundation damage.
The crew meets outside the home to discuss the job and the steps that need to be taken to remedy the issue. Dry Guys has numerous products to fix any foundation needs.
A crew member gives an idea of the size of the crack in relation to a quarter.
This large crack was located on the side of the stairs leading to the front door of the home.
In this picture, you can see another view of the front stairs. There is a large crack extending the entirety of the stairs and they are noticeably sinking.
This crack where the two walls meet can cause big problems for the homeowners. This could lead to water in the basement, ventilation problems, or an eventual foundation collapse.
In this area, you can see the individual concrete blocks in the foundation as the wall bows out and separates.
Foundation problems are also visible inside the home. In the basement, there are many large cracks, and other issues.
This wall is so badly bowed that it has actually separated from the basement floor, leaving a large gap.
This photo shows how far off level this wall has become. The wall has even started pushing out and bowing the metal support pipe.
In this picture you can see how the bowing of the wall has pushed out the metal support pipe so it is now butting up against a PVC pipe. The PVC pipe (which has its own function) is now bearing a lot of pressure that it was not meant to hold.
This is the area where the crew will start digging to place the plates for the GeoLock Anchors. When complete there will be plates outside under the ground and plates against the inside wall that will be drawn together over time to bring the wall back to level.
The crew gets their tools together to begin digging the holes for the outside plates.
The crew uses multiple tools to dug the holes for the outside plates in the back yard.
The crew digs using a drill in combination with digging by hand.
While the crew outside is digging, the guys inside are measuring for the placement of the inside plates.
The inside wall is connected to the holes outside heavy metal rod that can be tightened over time.
This is a view of the metal rod from the inside the basement as it is being pushed to the hole outside.
The crew reaches down in the holes to put the outside plates in place.
This is what the GoeLock plate looks like in the outside hole. The metal rod that was pushed through earlier is tightened through the center of the plate.
The crew uses the metal rod connecting the inside and outside plates to draw them together and push the wall back in place.
After the rod has been tightened, any excess is cut off so no parts are sticking out.
