Larry M. in La Crescent, MN had a bowing foundation wall in his basement. He was concerned that his wall was no longer stable and that it was putting pressure on the foundation of the home. He knew how expensive it can be to replace and entire foundation, so he decided he needed to have a professional take a look and see what his options were. One of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, went onsite to give him a free estimate. Rick recommended installing 5 Geo-Lock wall anchors on Larry's bowing foundation wall.
Larry was pleased to discover that our wall anchors are backed by a lifetime warranty, which made him comfortable having them installed.
