The discoloration on this basement wall is a clear symptom of moisture seeping in via the foundation blocks.
Our Design Specialist measured over an inch of shearing on this basement foundation wall.
These foundation walls were cracked and bowing, allowing water to leak from time to time. The owners wanted to sell the home and needed to fix the structural issues before moving forward.
This bowing wall in Duluth, MN is now stabilized with PowerBrace™.
These steel PowerBrace™ support beams are anchored to the ceiling rim joists and concrete floor. They will be tightened during dry period in an effort to restore the wall to its original position.
Basement wall cracks are due to soil pressure from the exterior of the home. Unfortunately, these cracks will only worsen with time.
This Duluth, MN home had issues with a cracked and bowing foundation. The homeowners were in the process of selling the home but they knew they needed to repair the foundation first. After receiving a referral on how to best protect their basement, they contacted DBS.
DBS Design Specialist James Miller went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation inspection and estimate for the work. After visiting the home, James reviewed the inspection with the homeowner and recommended the installation of our PowerBrace™ system. This unique foundation repair system permanently stabilizes walls and has a tightening system that can be adjusted over time to restore the wall to its original position.
DBS Foreman Joe Harris and his crew installed 5 PowerBrace™ wall support beams to stabilize the walls and prevent any further movement. These galvanized steel I-beams come with a 25-year nationally-backed warranty.
The homeowners can now confidently put this home on the market!
