This Pana, Illinois home was experiencing several cracks both outside and inside the house. To protect this house from further damage, Team Woods inspected the house for a solution.
Stair-stepping cracks indicate that the home is experiencing settlement. Over time these cracks will only widen and deepen.
The troubled unfortunately wasn't only on the outside. Once Team Woods entered the basement, they noticed severe cracks in the walls.
One of the walls contained a severe horizontal crack that will make the basement wall bow if untreated.
Here is another angle of the badly cracked wall. To solve this issue, Team Woods would install PowerBrace beams onto the walls to strengthen and secure the walls. These I-beams will prevent the walls from bowing and cracking by slowing pushing the wall back into place.
