Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair

Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair

Before After
Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair

A collapsing retaining wall that sits beneath a driveway that supports a bridge to the homes garage was in need of replacement. 

Street creep had pushed against the wall to the point of its collapse. Midwest Basement Systems replaced the wall with a new poured wall supported by stable fill to keep the pressure conditions consistent. 

We also placed helical tiebacks on two other retaining walls.

Emerson Dr in Ames
We recently found and removed toxic mold in our basement. In doing so, we cut out the bottom 4ft of our sheet rock to find wet bricks. We also had to remove our carpet and the concrete underneath has cracks. We would like to get the root of the problem solved so we can move forward.

Crack in foundation wall? leaking for awhile but husband had rows of boxes, etc. stored along wall and not known until now. Not sure what to do or what needs to be done. Drywall on this (north and west)wall needs to be torn out as damaged and showing mold in corner. House built 1948-49? then garage added 1959. I think that is where the crack had started. Any help or suggestions you may have would be appreciated.
