All the Support
This is the support that John put up in his basement to keep the bowing wall from crumbling down. It is not something that can be sustained for a long period of time but he did what he could until he had a permanent solution!
Could be Worse
This wall was cracking, mostly horizontal, which could lead to another bowed wall. This would not be good in general but this wall has a bunch of pipes on it so if it were to bow, the pipes could break and make problems even worse.
CarbonArmor to the Rescue
CarbonArmor stabilizes the cracks in the wall so they do not grow and cause the wall to bow or crumble. It lays flat on the wall so that it does not take up usable space or effect finishing the space.
PowerBraces Save the Day
These steel beams keep the wall from moving further and can be tightened to return the wall back upright. This provides a permanent solution so that the home is safe!
The PowerBrace is secured to the joist above the wall. This makes the solution stable and permanent.
