🐊 Wall Braces for a Bowing Foundation Wall

🐊 Wall Braces for a Bowing Foundation Wall


Well the PowerBrace is a it’s a pretty
unique option I mean you’ve seen a lot of people put steel up against the wall
and quite frankly it has been so under engineered over the years it’s just
amazing to me. We have literally seen it come off the wall because they didn’t
put it in properly and it just flung across and stuck into the wall on the
other side because of all the weight of the earth that was pushing on it.
We’ve seen them split, we see them bowed all the time and you know obviously
doing the GeoLock anchors is one of your best ways to do it. However you have
limitations sometimes. Maybe you can’t go out because of property line issues or
there may be something out there like a septic tank or something you just can’t
get into so a great option is the Power Braces. Now these are designed to be
bolted into the floor, they’re bolted into the joists up above and they have
the ability to continue to tighten that over time you can straighten your
wall out. See a regular steel beam on the wall if it’s engineered properly doesn’t
have the ability to make that wall go back into place over time where it’s
just there and it’s holding it. Now we can do that too if that’s what you want but
most people when they realize they have the ability to get their wall right
again that’s what they want to do. Now of course it takes some time you just can’t
force it you have to wait till the soil dries out so when it dries out now you
can actually move that wall and check it every three or four weeks. You’ll be
amazed at how far you can move your wall back into the square where it belongs
and of course our service people come out, we check the torque on it for you,
make sure you’re not going crazy and overdoing it and look around for other
potential problems but the PowerBrace is a great option. We also use Carbon
Fiber for when we have a situation when you have tight areas you can’t get
into with the PowerBraces. So what makes Dry Guys unique as compared to you
know some of the other competitors if you will is that we have multiple
options for the same scenario and we’re only going to do what
your foundation’s telling us is right for your house. Again I don’t want to try to
do something that we’re forcing in, it’s really not the best application, that’s
what makes Foundation Supportworks so great is because they give us all these
options so we have every possible way to benefit you the homeowner.
