Don't waste time or money on poor quality solutions. The PowerBrace™ system includes a zinc-coating that protects it from this kind of corrosion.
If exterior excavation is not a possible option, don’t hesitate to ask our specialists about the unique benefits afforded by our patented PowerBrace™ repair system.
The professionals at Northeast Basement Systems will be able to identify if your situation will benefit from this type of repair system, as opposed to traditional foundation repair techniques.
The PowerBrace™ system uses an effective, patented approach for straightening and supporting buckling or bowing foundation walls over time.
One of the greates advantages of the PowerBrace™ is that installation requires no exterior excavation, leaving your soils and landscaping safe from disruption. Installation is quick and easy, preventing any further bowing or buckling.
The PowerBrace™ wall repair system uses durable steel I-beams as supports. All of the components in the system benefit from a rust-resistant zinc coating, meaning your system will perform and look like new for years.
After careful analysis, our foundation experts will ascertain the exact number of PowerBrace™ supports that are needed for your foundation repair. Based on the height of the walls in your basement, we can cut the beams to exactly the right size, prepping them for installation.
The second step in the process involves connecting the top of the braces to the floor joist, located near the mudsill at the top of the wall. This special bracket is designed to be bolted to the floor joist, and features a large-diameter bolt for any tightening or adjustment after installation.
PowerBrace™ is designed to not damage your floor framing. Before recommending this type of installation, One of our foundation specialists will examine the health and strength of your floor joists.
In order for the PowerBrace™ Wall System to perform optimally, the I-beams need to be completely vertical or plumb. The foundation contractor will use a level to set each beam’s position.
The team of experts at Northeast Basement Systems stands by each and every one of our PowerBrace™ installations. Every PowerBrace™ comes with a 25-year warranty against manufacturing defects along with our installation warranty.
The final step of the PowerBrace™ installation involves connecting each beam to the foundation floor using a special bolt-in-place bracket.
What sets the PowerBrace™ System apart from other interior installations is that the I-beams span the full height of the foundation walls. This means PowerBrace™ can repair bowing and buckling towards the middle of the wall and also inward movement near the top or bottom.
Our patented, proven PowerBrace™ System uses an engineered adjustment mechanism that is completely unique.
Each I-beam is anchored to the floor joists with a unique bracket that features a long bolt that allows for tightening over time, advancing the I-beam and returning the wall back to its original position. The amount of straightening will depend on several factors, including soil conditions.
At Northeast Basement Systems, we are committed to repairing shifting, tilting, buckling, and bowing foundation walls the right way the first time, providing you with a long-lasting solution and returning your property to its original condition.
