Homeowner Colten B. called Healthy Spaces with the concern of a bowing wall in his basement. The wall was so bad that it was visibly leaning.
Upon inspection the bowing wall was so bad that the top of it appeared to be separated from the home. Our Design Specialist recommends a PowerBrace system to stabilize the foundation of the home. Every 6 months, these braces would be tightened to ensure the bowing crack and foundation would become stronger.
