Serving NJ, NYC, Jersey City, Edison, Staten Island
An unfinished basement in Wrightstown, NJ had a serious problem. The foundation wall was bowing inward and the homeowner was very concerned about the safety of his home. There were both vertical and horizontal cracks running through the foundation, and the problem was only getting worse. Searching for a solution that would fix his foundation for good, the homeowner set an appointment with Quality 1st Basement Systems to save his home.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a PowerBrace wall reinforcement system to fix the bowing wall. Because the bowing was so advanced, the installation team excavated the area and added anchors that would lock the wall repair system into place. The Geo-Lock wall anchors stabilize the basement wall from bowing any further, pulling it back into place and straightening it. Restoring property value to the home, the wall anchors are a permanent solution that don't just mask or hide the problem. Inside the basement, the PowerBrace steel I-beams were installed to help straighten the bowing wall over time. The steel I-beams were cut to fit so the size will always be perfect and work for each individual basement. The homeowner is thankful and relieved to know that his foundation will no longer crack. Wall failure was prevented and the home was saved!
