The PowerBrace System effectively stabilizes your basement walls, in turn protecting you largest investment-your home. Heavy-duty, zinc plated steel beams are custom-fit to your basement wall height. The beam is then secured tight against your basement wall with heavy-duty steel brackets that are anchored to your basement floor and floor joists.
The steel beams will stabilize the wall in its current position, without any further adjustment. A unique, patented approach to the PowerBrace design is the ability to continue to tighten the system during the dry season for possible wall improvement.
The CarbonArmor wall reinforcing system reinforces and stabilizes your basement walls, restoring value and integrity to your home. The CarbonArmor system is a fiber-reinforced Polymer that is 10 times stronger than steel and is specifically designed for basement walls.
While there are a number of potential causes of cracked and bowing foundation walls, the most common reason is pressure from the soil near the outside of the wall. When clay soils get wet they expand and put pressure on the wall. When the force exceeds the strength of the wall, the wall cracks or breaks. This reduces the structural integrity of the wall, and when the wetting cycle is repeated, this causes further weakening and inward movement.
