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.
Stopping Stair-step Cracks with the PowerBrace System
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.
