Fixing and Protecting Cracking, Tilting Walls in Richwood, OH

Thursday, March 1st, 2018 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

During the two years he has lived in his house, a homeowner in Richwood, OH, started to notice some problems in his basement were only getting worse over time. The foundation walls were showing signs of failure in the form of various cracks. Some areas of the walls also appeared to be slightly tilting inward.

Concerned with the structural stability of his house, the owner wanted to make sure these issues would not result in serious damage. He wanted to have them fixed once and for all, so he started to research potential repairs and repair companies to complete the work. After hearing about Ohio Basement Authority, he was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help him.

He met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the condition of the walls. Our inspector then recommended one of our reliable foundation repair solutions.

Solution

One of our crews then installed several IntelliBrace beams on the walls.

These steel beams are fastened and secured to the floor joists. The beams are then plumbed against the wall as level as possible, and the bottom of the beams are anchored to the floor. These heavy-duty beams are zinc-plated beams so they are protected from corrosion and damage, unlike the other typical metal and wooden supports. Another unique feature with this system is the ability to tighten the beams during dry seasons to potentially improve and straighten the wall over time.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair has helped him create a safe and stable living environment.
