Foundation Repair Photo Album: Wall Stabilization in Cookeville, TN
This Tennessee home was having big foundation issues. Their walls were cracking and bowing and the homeowners were tired of worrying about their home, so they called us! The cracking only got worse over time and this has not only caused eyesores, but also water leakage and water damage, such as mold because of it! When our inspector came out to the home, he knew our products were exactly what they needed. We have various foundation products that are nationally backed and loved by previous customers. Our inspector told the homeowner all about the products and they agreed what products were needed were and he was there to answer all of their questions. As forces of nature, such as moisture and frost, interact with the soil around your home, the soil expands. That expansion results in a constant inward force on your foundation wall until it can no longer support the pressure, causing cracking, bowing and tipping.For this issue, we decided to install our PowerBrace System. These zinc-plated steel beams are custom-fit to your basement wall height and secured tight against your basement wall with brackets anchored to your basement floor and floor joists. PowerBrace's unique, patented design allows the system to be tightened over time, potentially reversing wall failure without any invasive drilling or digging on the property.Our crew also installed our Geo-Lock Wall Anchors System for this problem on another wall. Heavy-duty, galvanized earth anchors are embedded in stable, undisturbed soil outside your foundation wall. Each anchor is connected by a steel rod to a wall plate that provides clamping pressure against the inside of the foundation wall. This method also offers the potential to straighten the wall back to its original position.
They now have walls that will be straightened and back to its original position over time, as well as floors that are properly supported!We love helping homeowners solve their biggest worries, call us today for your free inspection with an expert!
