This home owner in Rickman Tennessee noticed the walls had cracks and were shifting. They became aware that putting off work any longer would certainly make this dangerous situation worse.
Our inspection did in fact reveal foundation failure. Our job was to straighten the existing foundation walls so they could support the load of the home.
Our team installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors with 12"x28" wall plates to secure this foundation.
These basement walls were bowing in and needed attention before the problem got worse. Carbon Armor strips were able to secure and support the wall to keep it from any further damage.
Outside digging around the foundation was not necessary and no need to jack hammer, move plumbing, hot water heater, or other lines.
This home is over 25 years old. The home owner had noticed stair step cracks in the basement wall. The family plans to keep the home for generations, protecting the home and correcting the issue before it got worse was important.
CarbonArmor system is the ONLY fabric carbon fiber product designed to specific code for Fiber Reinforced Polymers on masonry walls. CarbonArmour is low profile, 7" wide strap that is able to 'hug" the wall tightly.
The corner of this basement had started to fall. To provide support steel push piers were installed. A heavy-duty steel bracket is placed under and against the footing, steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket and down to load bearing earth.
Provide best opportunity to life the home back towards original position.

Bowing walls can cause serious foundation damage, but our experts are fully trained to fix bowing walls and prevent your home from suffering major foundation issues.
This homeowner has been living with basement wall cracks for 5 years. The home was purchased as a retirement home; the safety of this structure is a priority. Getting the job done right is important.
The weight of the soil is pressing around the foundation wall; the wall is giving in to the weight creating cracks in the block. Wall anchors are used to counteract the soil pressure and reinforce the foundation wall.
This Nashville basement is used for living, storage, and utilities. The family had noticed some cracks and bowing of the blocks and knew contrary to popular belief foundation movement was not okay.
A free inspection showed significant hydrostatic pressure against that foundation wall.
The 8ft x 45ft wall needed a little reinforcement.
A load calculator determines the necessary spacing to carry the load of the structure. In all, 9 GeoLock Wall Anchors were spaced approximately 5.5' apart, a little closer in the corner to hold the corner load.

If your home is experiencing wall failure but there is no access outside of the home, the permanent solution to fix these issues is a product called CarbonArmor. It is a high strength material that is almost impossible to stretch - this means that it can be fixed to the concrete walls and will prevent them from bending or bowing inward.

After years of water damage the concrete work was in bad shape. The broken concrete was a safety concern; trip hazard, holding water when it rains, freezing in the winter, and less than pretty. Removing the old concrete, pouring new, and giving the water proper drainage solves this Nashville home owners problem permanently.

The family of this 6 year old home in Franklin TN was worried about mold in the crawl space. They noticed the crawl space was damp and worried how that affected the air quality of the air in the home above. The family had allergies and air quality pays a large part on their comfort in the home.
Sealing and insulating the crawl space to include a 20 mil vapor barrier and a small-in-size, but mighty in capabilities, dehumidifier was installed in the crawl space. With temperature and moisture controlled mold and mildew were no longer a threat to the family.
This home was starting to show wall cracks where the foundation was no longer able to support the weight of the home sufficiently. Frontier Basement Systems were able to install Push Piers to permanently stable the foundation and resolve the cracking from getting any worse!
