Before and After
  • Basement Wall Bracing

    After

    Wet spring soils swelled up with water pushed this basement wall inward.  As you can see the crack in the wall is opened up wide.  About a half of an inch.  The next photo will show the wall is pushed back and the crack is closing as the wall is straightened.

    This was a home that had been sitting on the market for quite some time due to its foundation issues. The home was beautiful other than the bowing and cracking in the unfinished basement walls. PowerBraces were installed to stabilize the failing walls. PowerBraces can be tightened over time, potentially returning the wall to it's original straight state.

    Wood is one of the rarest foundation types as well as one of the trickiest to deal with. 

    When a wood wall is bowing it requires not only a brace but also horizontal supports on the top and bottom of the wall.
