Sub-par I-beam systems will rust and deteriorate over time. The PowerBrace™ system includes a zinc-coating that protects it from this kind of corrosion.
Our Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors are the perfect solution for a bowing or buckling foundation wall. The only downside to this solution is that it requires access to the earth outside of the foundation. This wall anchor system could also be eliminated as an option if there are property line issues.
If our experts examine your foundation and determine that the Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors are not the ideal solution to fix your structural issue, the PowerBrace™ system may be used instead.
The PowerBrace™ employs a unique, patented approach to stabilizing and straightening bowed and buckled foundation walls over time.

The PowerBrace™ foundation wall systems immediately and permanently halts the inward movement of your foundation walls once installation is complete. This system is an excellent solution because it can be installed with no disruption to outside soils or landscape and is quick to install.
The I-beams and support hardware of The PowerBrace™ wall repair system are specially coated with rust-resistant zinc to keep your system looking and performing like new.
The number of strong, steel I-beams that are required for your wall repair will be determined by one of our many in-house foundation experts. Before a PowerBrace™ is installed in your home, it must be cut to size basement on the height of your basement. We will cut each beam to the appropriate height to custom fit each beam.
After the braces are cut, they are attached to a floor joist near the mudsill at the top of the wall. Our uniquely designed brackets are then bolted to the floor joist with a large-diameter bolt for adjusting and tightening after the installation.
A PowerBrace™ installation will not damage your floor framing. To ensure the effective and efficient performance of this wall repair system, one of our certified foundation contractors will inspect the strength of your floor joists prior to recommending this repair strategy.
We at The Basement Doctor of Central Kentucky take pride in the excellent service and lasting quality of each of our installations. Our contractors will use a level to fine-tune the position of each beam because when they are perfectly vertical the PowerBrace™ Foundation Wall System works best.
When the installation of your PowerBrace™ is just about complete, it is time to attach each beam to your concrete floor. This step is accomplished with a special bolt-in-place bracket that keeps that beams nice and tight as to hold the foundation in place.
The PowerBrace™ System is unique in that it spans the entire height of your foundation walls, unlike other foundation wall repair methods that install from the inside of the foundation walls. This specially designed system can repair walls that are sliding inwards from the bottom, tilting inwards from the top, or are bowing and buckling from the middle. Overall, the PowerBrace™ System is ideal for many foundation repairs.
The PowerBrace™ System includes a unique, patented adjustment mechanism that is unlike any other I-beam foundation wall repair system.
The bracket that anchors each I-beam to a floor joist includes a long bolt that can be tightened over time to advance the I-beam. This can force a bowed or buckled foundation wall back toward is original vertical & straight position. Straightening potential depends on several factors, including soil conditions outside the foundation.
