After living in their house for several years, homeowners in Newark, OH, knew they could no longer ignore structural issues that have plagued them for quite some time. One of the foundation walls was severely cracking and beginning to tilt inward, which indicates this wall is failing.
Concerned with the safety and structural integrity of their home, the owners were finally motivated to address these issues. After seeing some of Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they were eager to contact us to learn about how our repair methods could help them. Once they met with one of our inspectors who evaluated the wall’s condition, the owners were equally excited for one of our crews to install the perfect solution.
We placed several IntelliBrace beams on the problematic foundation wall to permanently reinforce it and help improve its stability and condition. Similar to the other products, IntelliBraces also reinforce the walls and prevent any more damage. After the beams are fastened and secured to the floor joists, they are plumbed against the wall as level as possible. The bottoms of the beams are then anchored to the floor. The unique design of this system allows the beams to be tightened for wall improvement.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing these reliable repairs have helped them create a safer and healthier home.
