Bowing Walls Prove Troublesome for Decatur, IL Homeowner

A client contacted Helitech with a basement wall problem at his home in Decatur, IL. The client explained he had an extreme foundation problem on his north wall. Upon inspection, it was noticed that the basement wall was leaning in 3” from the top and was binding his gas line. Bowing wall solutions can become costly if the wrong contractor is hired.

Helitech’s solution to save the client’s wall was the use of A.B. Chance helical anchors. The wall had to be dug out on the outside of the home and straightened in order to allow the rotation of the basement wall back to structural integrity.

After installation of the A.B. Chance helical anchors, Helitech cleaned the exterior basement wall and applied a spray-membrane to prevent water seepage through the cracks and cold joints.

The client and his wife were ecstatic with the work Helitech did in order to save the value of their home. The client said, “I have never seen a crew work as hard as they did”. This home was truly healed by Helitech!

Greg was very helpful and knowledgeable about the systems. He explained what was needed and how it would prevent further structural damage to the basement wall.

He went out of his way to speak to the city workers who were digging to put new sidewalks in the neighborhood and my sump pump discharge was directly under where the new sidewalk was to go. This helped me to not have to dig a trench myself to remove the pipe. He also discovered the source of the water issue in my basement which did not require further waterproofing action. I would recommend your company to anyone in the future.
