This homeowner in Sandown, New Hampshire had recently purchased the property, and needed to make some immediate repairs to the foundation walls and shifting deck supports. The home was built along the edge of a pond, and overtime settlement from a high water table was causing damage. The cracked, leaning foundation walls were stabilized with GeoLock wall anchors. The deck support posts were installed on concrete sono tubes, which were replaced with helical piers that would not shift or sink. With all repairs made, this homeowner now has peace of mind that their property investment will keep it's value.
