PowerBrace Beams Save a Severely Bowed Foundation in Oscoda Township, MI

Stair step cracks in basements are a common sign that the foundation walls are bowing. Seeing two sets, like in this before photo, means that the foundation is really struggling. When bowing is this severe, the basement needs a proven system. The PowerBrace Wall Repair System is perfect for fighting the inward pressure that causes bowing. The beams in the after photo make up the system. They span from the floor joists in the ceiling to the foundation floor and put a halt to wall movement and any further damage. At the top of the beams, there are special tightening bolt attachments that can actually force the walls back toward their original position. With the strength of 16 PowerBrace beams behind the walls, this basement will remain protected and stable for years to come.

While the stair-step like crack in the wall in the first photo may seem to be just an eyesore, it’s really an indicator of a large foundation issue. Over time, as soil settles around the foundation, the walls may experience pressure from this, causing the foundation walls to bow. If this occurs more severely in the middle of the wall, the adjacent corner walls will also be effected by the pressure, causing the stair-step cracking effect seen in the walls of this Oscoda, MI home. To stabilize and straighten the walls, our team installed 16 PowerBraces throughout the basement. This steel beam system is resistant to corrosion and can be tightened over time to continually improve the condition of the walls, preventing any further cracking.

Erika and Joshua decided to give Ayers a call because of their block foundation that was bowing. These support issues with their cracking foundation needed to be addressed by professionals. Our crew decided that PowerBrace would be the perfect solution.


PowerBrace will evenly distribute the weight of the house to ensure the foundation is well supported. The Power Braces will prevent their foundation walls from cracking. Over time the system can even be tightened to not only secure the walls in place, but to also straighten them. 


Erika and Josh were thrilled to ensure their home's safety with the PowerBraces in place securing their foundation walls!
