After a homeowner recently passed away, his children wanted to stabilize and preserve his house in Grove City, OH, for the family. One thing they wanted to tackle was fixing a basement wall that was cracking and tilting inward.
After browsing Ohio Basement Authority’s website during their research, the family was motivated to contact us for further assistance. They met with Jeff Floit who completed a thorough evaluation of the home and the wall in question. Jeff then suggested some of our reliable foundation repair methods.
One of our crews then worked to complete these various projects. The first was what is known as a dig and push project. This involves excavating the ground outside the wall and digging down to the footing. The wall is then pushed back to as level as possible, and the dirt is replaced.
The crew also added interior solutions to further reinforce this wall – several IntelliBrace beams. IntelliBrace beams permanently stabilize the wall and offer the best opportunity to straighten it. These beams are anchored to the floor and floor joists and the heavy-duty bolts holding them to the floor joists can be adjusted for wall improvement.
The family now has peace of mind knowing these trustworthy repair solutions have helped them create a safer home.
