The Basement Guys® Cleveland Case Studies: PowerBrace™ and WaterGuard® for Bristolville, Ohio House

Monday, June 16th, 2003 by Leslie Uphouse


A woman living in the Bristolville, Ohio area reached out to The Basement Guys for help. She can't see her walls because they are covered in plaster but knows there is a problem because of the presence of mold, mildew, and moisture. 


Our representative arrived at her house for a free estimate by examining the basement. He removed some of the plaster with her permission and noticed that the wall was bowing inward and found a few cracks. 

He quoted her for PowerBrace™ Foundation Wall Repair System to stabilize the walls and included a WaterGuard® Drain System to collect the water that was causing the mold, mildew, and moisture buildup. 

The woman liked our estimate and scheduled our team to do the job. The team installed 6 PowerBraces™ and 58 feet of the WaterGuard® around the base of the foundation.
