    The PowerBrace Wall Repair System

    The PowerBrace Wall Repair System is the ideal way to stabilize failing foundation walls. If you have walls that are bowing, buckling, or tilting inwards, installing a PowerBrace™ system can stop any further damage and potentially straighten the wall.

    The PowerBrace consists of steel I-beams that are secured to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. This system is easily adjustable, allowing for tightening of the brace to attempt to raise the wall back to its original position. This system doesn't involve any exterior excavation and installs quickly with minimal disruption to your basement space.

Once tightened, the anchors will hold the wall securely in its current position without any further adjustment.
