Basement Wall Stabilization

One of the most common reasons for a bowing wall is the expansion of clay soils when moisture is present. Clay soils expand when they get wet, and shrink when they dry out. The expansion of wet clay soils put additional pressure on the foundation wall. When this force exceeds the strength of the wall, the wall cracks and moves inward. The structural integrity of the wall is now compromised, and future wetting of the soil will continue to weaken the wall over time.

Steel I-Beams

Our steel I-beams effectively stabilize bowing or buckling foundation walls from inside your basement without any disturbance to the outside of your home. These beams are vertically placed every 5 – 6 feet against the foundation wall and held in place by steel brackets below at the footer and above at the joists. The brackets are then tightened, transferring pressure from the beam to the wall to stop the buckling wall from moving inward any further. These pre-engineered beams are an effective and permanent solution that restores structural integrity to a foundation wall. Bowed, sheared and tipped walls can be quickly repaired and restored with just one product.

Carbon Fiber Straps

External pressure to the outside of your home’s walls can cause problems such as the shearing, bowing and/or tipping of these walls. We use carbon kevlar straps to restore structure to affected walls- These straps are over four times stronger than steel! The patented Epoxy Rivet Technology guarantees the strongest adherence to the wall and the factory epoxy-saturated carbon ensures maximum efficiency.

These carbon fiber straps are top-of-wall anchors for basement wall repair that are tensioned after installation. These top anchors are mechanically fastened to the rim joist, not the sill plate.This engages the building’s floor system, providing a stronger, and more durable anchor. Engaging the floor system (this is the first story floor to the top of the basement wall) provides the strongest and safest connection.
