Bowing Walls Corrected with PowerBraces in Des Moines, IA Bowing Walls Corrected with PowerBraces in Des Moines, IA

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.

We encapsulated this homeowner's crawl space with CleanSpace, a vapor barrier, to help the home become more energy efficient and add usable storage space. CleanSpace is a 20-mil liner making it strong enough to hold up to things being taken in and out and will also never grow mold or mildew on its surface.
