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!

Jason Whitley was the gentleman who come out to the house and did the estimate on our sagging floors. Very professional and friendly! He even took pictures so we could see what all was happening under the house. I am extremely happy with Helitech and ready to get my floors back to normal. Making the reservation was quick and easy, Jason called before arriving, called and got an estimate quickly for repairs. Very smooth process and less stressful than I have been fretting over this past few weeks.
