Our customer called in need of a permanent solution for the bowing wall in their basement. The wall had buckled years before and the company they hired to fix it had essentially filled in the area surrounding the wall with sand and called it a day. While this worked for a while, eventually water started seeping through the wall again and it once again started bowing. They had already moved to a new house and wanted to sell this one, but not without fixing the problem for good.
We installed PowerBraces inside to stabilize the wall, and used SentrySeal on the outside of the foundation to keep water from entering through the compromised wall. SentrySeal is a thin but strong membrane applied to the outside of a foundation wall in order to waterproof it. It's an extensive process due to excavation needs, but it's worth it.
