Foundation Repair Photo Album: Bowing Garage Foundation, Plymouth, NH
This homeowner in Plymouth New Hampshire was experiencing their garage foundation bowing outward. They are worried about the problem getting worse. They might be selling the home soon and would not like this to be a sticking point. They decided to call EFS for a free inspection.
Design Specialist Michael LaMalfa inspected the garage inside and out to fully diagnose what is causing the foundation walls to be pushed out. During Michael's inspection, he noticed some small cracking on the foundation wall. Those cracks indicated to him that the garage was settling slightly. To address the bowing walls and the settlement, Michael recommended installing Push Piers and Geolocks.
Crew Lead Scott Crandall and his team installed 8 Push Piers and 8 Geolocks to the foundation of the garage. These two products will lock the walls in place and also stop the foundation from settling.
