Due to the wall movement, the walls starting cracking are damaged in this photo.
When part of the garage wall was removed, the supporting walls started to move and became unstable.
Band-Aid Supporting Beam
You can see the supporting beam the homeowners were temporarily using here. This type of beam was not made to hold the amount of weight it is under, causing the walls to move and shift.
Before Power Braces, the walls of the garage were shifting and moving. Power Braces can help stabilize movement of walls and over time help straighten the walls back out.
North Garage Wall Before
The North side of their garage was not showing as much damage, but showing small signs. They decided to use Power Braces on this wall as well to make sure they were covered and had as much stability as possible.
Full Perimeter Power Braces
Power Braces are floor to ceiling braces installed to joists at the top. They prevent further movement of walls and can help straighten out the walls over time.
Power Braces After
Power Braces are installed at a certain distance to ensure the same amount of pressure is on each brace. This way it makes sure the walls are stabilized.
This Jack replaced the supporting beam they had previously. This Jack is able to withstand the amount of pressure and weight to help stabilize the home.
All together, these Power Braces and Basement Jack work together to support the walls and foundation. Over time they can be torqued to straighten out the walls. They also come with a 25 year warranty to ensure they are taken care of.
