Foundation Repair Photo Album: Bowing Walls Fixed in East Windsor, NJ

Album Description

The homeowners of this East Windsor, NJ property noticed bowing walls in their basement. The foundation was cracked along the cinderblock wall, and they were concerned about the problem getting worse. There was a slight odor in the basement and it sometimes got damp. After calling Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate on fixing the basement, specialist Michael Jersey came out the property to inspect it. He suggested foundation repair products and a new sump pump, which would fix the bowing walls and waterproof the basement.

Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a PowerBrace foundation wall repair system to fix the bowing walls. Bowing walls are caused by outside pressure, pushing the home's foundation inward. If left alone, the walls can collapse and damage the entire house! The PowerBrace is a repair system installed inside the home with no need for messy and expensive excavation work. Steel I-beams are installed to stabilize the wall, preventing it from tilting in any further.The PowerBrace works so well because it can be tightened over time, so it will continue to keep the walls from bowing. The PowerBrace I-beams will never rust or deteriorate and are cut to size to custom fit any basement. In order to waterproof the basement, a SuperSump sump pump was installed. The SuperSump sump pump has a powerful iron-cast engine that will pump water out of the house. Its airtight lid keeps out water, debris and musty odors. 

Now this home is safe. The foundation is fixed, the walls will no longer tilt, and the new sump pump keeps the space dry. The homeowner is very pleased with the results!
