๐ŸŠ Bad Waterproofing Systems Ruin Foundations – Foundation Repair


Well once again you can see I’m holding
this level against the wall. The bubble is on the money
but you can see I have a good inch and a quarter down here. I have at least two
inches at the bottom and the center of the wall is coming in quite a bit. What’s
kept this from failing frankly were these pipes and if you take a look here you
can actually see the bow in the pipe. Yeah it’s under a lot of pressure, a lot
of load right now. This thing is like a spring ready to release, kind of like a
trap if you will. But we’ll be able to take care of that with our GeoLock
anchors. We’ll hold everything in place and over time we’ll be able to
straighten that wall out. And that extra concrete is from the French drain they
put in? Yes they put a French drain here which was the wrong system that helped
destabilize the wall which allowed the wall to kind of twist a little bit at
the footing because the footing acts like a snowshoe to distribute the
weight of the house and what they did is they took a third of the footing away so
when they did that this allows that wall to kinda tip and then you see the gap
thing left here. This is to kind of let water travel around to the sump pump.
It’s definitely a homemade system.
