CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System
The CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System is a state-of-the-art solution for bowing and cracking foundation walls. Using the same technology the Army Corps of Engineers developed to reinforce bomb shelters, skyscrapers, and bridges, we use CarbonArmor® to stabilize your basement walls.
These strips are made from a fiber reinforced polymer that's 10 times stronger than steel and is specifically designed for this purpose. Using high strength epoxy resin, straps are attached the wall and secured with heavy-duty steel brackets. The straps will stabilize the wall and begin to pull it back to its original position, preventing further problems. This system requires no exterior excavation, installs quickly, and won't impact future basement finishing.
PowerBrace™ Foundation Wall Repair System
The PowerBrace™ Wall Repair System is the ideal way to stabilize failing foundation walls. If you have walls that are bowing, buckling, or tilting inwards, installing a PowerBrace™ system can stop any further damage and potentially straighten the wall.
The PowerBrace™ consists of steel I-beams that are secured to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. This system is easily adjustable, allowing for tightening of the brace to attempt to raise the wall back to its original position. This system doesn't involve any exterior excavation and installs quickly with minimal disruption to your basement space.
GeoLock® Wall Anchor System
GeoLock® Wall Anchors are designed to repair walls that are sliding inwards, tilting at the top, bowing, and buckling. These wall anchors are made of galvanized steel for a long-lasting solution that will prevent any further inward movement of your walls.
Wall anchors work by extending from your wall to the stable, hard packed soil beyond your home. They anchor into these stronger soils and brace the foundation wall, preventing further movement. Wall anchors are installed with minimal disruption to your lawn, and they won't damage the interior of your basement or take up usable space. In fact, GeoLock® Wall Anchors can easily be concealed by our Hide-A-Way® covers for a clean finished appearance.
GeoLock® Street Creep Repair System
"Street creep" is a phenomenon where thermal expansion of pavement surrounding a home pushes against the foundation and creates problems such as bowing walls. The GeoLock® Street Creep System is designed to eliminate inward movement and stabilize your foundation walls against the pressure created by your street, driveway, and garage slab.
This system works by first creating expansion joints in the driveway that allow individual slabs to expand and contract without damaging other ones. These joints are filled with a resilient backer rod and a durable, flexible polyurethane sealant. Next, GeoLock® Wall Anchors are installed to stabilize the walls in competent soils and potentially straighten the wall. All holes created for installation are then repaired. With this system installed, you won't have to worry about additional movement creating problems for your foundation walls.
GeoLock® Channel Anchor System
GeoLock® Channel Anchors are a versatile and effective method of stabilizing walls that are pushing in at the top or bottom, bowing, or tipping. With corrosion-resistant galvanized steel and floor mounts for extra strength, our channel anchors provide an incredible durable solution that will halt all inward movement of your walls.
To install channel anchors, we begin by boring holes in the yard for earth anchors and drilling corresponding holes in the foundation. Galvanized steel earth anchors are installed and steel rods are joined to them through the wall. The channel anchor is then mounted on the other end of the rod inside your foundation wall, secured to the floor, and tightened into place. This will permanently stabilize your wall and could return it to its original condition. After this, we restore your landscaping and basement to the state we found them in.
