The Patented PowerBrace Brackets reverses the forces of nature by reinforcing the wall and over time can move the wall back to its original position with out excavation outside of the home or removal of concrete from the basement floor. Whether the foundation wall is built with block, tile, wood, or poured concrete Power Brace offers a permanent solution.
The PowerBrace Advantage
The Patented PowerBrace Brackets have revolutionized the use of steel I-beams to reinforce a bowing basement wall. I-beams have been used to reinforce bowing walls for decades but the with the help of the PowerBrace Brackets steel I-beams have been transformed into the most reliable wall bracing system available. Unlike wall anchor systems that rely on the moving soil to stabilize a foundation wall, the PowerBrace utilizes the strength of the concrete floor and the floor joist to stabilize the wall.
The bottom bracket of the PowerBrace simply uses two concrete anchors to hold the I-beam in place against the bottom of the foundation wall. The PowerBrace top bracket fastens in the floor joist and when a constant pressure is kept on the bracket the beam will slowly move the wall back to its original position with out any exterior excavation, except in extreme situations. Since the PowerBrace has contact with the wall from the basement floor up to the floor joist, the PowerBrace will eliminate the possibility of wall shear. PowerBrace is the most Reliable and most Cost Effective product to use on a cracked or bowed foundation wall.
