Chad B. from Evansville, IN, was seriously concerned about the condition of his foundation walls. The basement walls were cracking and recently started to bow. His mother-in-law previously had work done by Healthy Spaces, so he decided to give them a call. The Healthy Spaces team sent Design Specialist, Mike Rogers, to inspect Chad's home and provide a free assessment.
When foundation walls are bowing, buckling or are showing signs of inward movement, it means your foundation is settling. Signs you'll see inside of the home are similar to the ones you'll see outside. Foundation walls built from concrete block will typically show stair-step cracks. Foundation walls move inward primarily due to the soil around the foundation, putting so much pressure against the walls that it has to move somewhere.
Mike suggested the best permanent solution for Chad's basement was to install The PowerBrace System. The PoweBrace system is designed to permanently stabilize the home's foundation. These steel I-beams will stabilize the wall in its current position without any further adjustment. Over time, the PowerBrace™ System can be tightened to make bowing or tilting walls straighter and more vertical.
Chad B. will finally have some peace of mind knowing that he won't have to worry about his foundation walls anymore.
