PowerBrace Saves a Family Cottage in Gobles, MI

PowerBrace Saves a Family Cottage in Gobles, MI PowerBrace Saves a Family Cottage in Gobles, MI

The crew took a trip out to Gobles, MI to repair the foundation on this family cottage. Walls start to bow when the pressure of expanding soil becomes too much and pushes them inward. One of the telltale signs of a bowing foundation is cracking that resembles stair steps appearing on the basement walls. These walls were being pushed so much that two different foundation solutions were needed: our Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and PowerBrace system. The PowerBrace system is pictured in the after photo.

In total, 12 different PowerBrace beams were used to push the crumbling walls back to an upright position. Since the system can be tightened whenever it's needed, the walls will continue to improve and straighten until they return back to their original position. The owners of this cottage can now rest easy when they visit, well easier because family trips are stressful enough without crumbling walls.

Our customer called when the horizontal crack in her basement wall started getting bigger. There was no water coming in, but the wall was starting to bow. We used PowerBraces to stabilize the wall, and by tightening them each year we can hopefully straighten the wall over time.

Job Stories From Gobles, MI
Failing Gobles, MI Wall Now Stablized Thanks to Geo-Lock Wall Anchors

Paula and John M. called because one of the walls in their basement had both stair-step and horizontal cracks and was bowing inward. The problem had been worsening over time and they were ready for a solution that would permanently fix their failing foundation wall.

To stabilize the wall and prevent it from cracking or shifting any further, we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system. This system used steel earth anchors that were placed deep in the ground in stable soil outside of the foundation wall. The earth anchors were then connected to the wall with an interior wall anchor and secured with steel rods. The system was then tightened into place and the wall was stabilized. Although this installation required outside excavation, we still tried to limit the amount of disruption to the home and the landscaping outside was backfilled when we were finished.

Bowing Gobles, MI Wall Now Stabilized Using PowerBraces

Cathy and Jeff G. called because their block basement wall was bowing and had a large crack in the center. They had lived in the home for 30 years, and had some repairs done in the past but the crack continued to grow in size. There was no water seepage due to a sump pump that was located directly next to the leaking wall, but these homeowners wanted to effectively fix their failing wall once and for all.

To repair the failing wall we installed the PowerBrace system. To begin the installation we sized steel I-beams to fit the height of the basement and then secured them to the base of the wall at the floor and to the joists above the wall using powerful steel brackets. After the system was tightened into place, the wall was immediately stabilized and able to be tightened over time to potentially shift the wall back to its original position.

Stabilizing a Bowed Wall in Gobles, MI

Our customer called us because a horizontal crack in their basement wall was enlarging, and the wall had started bowing. There was no water coming through the crack, but they were concerned about the safety of the bowing wall.

After our inspection, in which we decided PowerBraces were needed to stabilize and straighten the wall, they decided to hold off because the house was up for sale and they were sure they could get the buyer to pay for the repair.

Well, we heard from them about six months later, when the bowing wall was holding up the sale of their home. We installed the PowerBraces and, over time, will hopefully be able to tighten them in order to straighten the wall.

Installing Exterior Waterproofing in a Gobles, MI Cottage

Our customer called with a different type of water issue. His cottage sat lower than the surrounding driveway, and when it rained or snow thawed, all of the water was directed right to the laundry room.

This was one instance where installing a perimeter waterproofing system in the affected room was not the solution. Instead, we installed a curtain drain along the perimeter of the home between the house and the driveway. We also installed a TrenchDrain system at the most severe water points. These two systems will work in conjunction to catch and funnel the water to a different discharge point before it can enter the home.

1950s block wall basement had bow in middle on one side when we moved in 14 years ago. Does not seem to have shifted, and zero leaks since we repaired gutters, but we have been scraping and preparing to paint and the mortar gap is concerning us more then just filling in with hydraulic cement.
