Simply saying ‘foundation repair’ can stress out any Gates Mill, Ohio homeowner. Foundation repair is often associated with an expensive and intrusive project but getting a professional to examine the area can determine the degree of damage.
Many homes that are experiencing foundation problems have the same indicators but typically, homeowners do not realize those signs are from their foundation problems. Those common signs are cracks along the foundation, tilting chimneys, jamming doors/windows, and cracking/sinking slab floors. Unfortunately, if those problems are ignored, it will impact the value and stability of your home.
If you are experiencing any of the said signs of foundation issues, you have come to the right place! The Basement Guys have several methods for each situation to solve this problem. There is more information available on our website!
The CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System is a cutting-edge solution for cracked and bowing foundation walls. This system uses the same technology the Army Corps of Engineers used to reinforce bomb shelters, bridges, and skyscrapers.
What makes CarbonArmor® Wall System stand out is the carbon fiber straps used. These straps are up to TEN TIMES stronger than steel! When installed on the interior face of a wall, the CarbonArmor® straps will stabilize the wall that won’t affect future basement projects.
This wall repair system is the perfect way to stabilize any buckling, tilting inwards or bowing walls. The PowerBrace™ Wall Repair System will stop any more damage from occurring to the foundation wall.
The PowerBrace™ is the superior wall repair system because of the steel I-beams attached to the joists above the wall secured with steel brackets. Another aspect of this wall repair system is that it is easily adjustable, you can tighten the brace to attempt to raise the wall. There is no exterior excavation making this a quick project with minimal disruption to your basement.
If you have foundation walls that are sliding inwards, tilting at the top, or bowing the GeoLock® Wall Anchors will solve those problems. Our GeoLock® Wall Anchors are made of galvanized steel that prevents any further movement for a long-lasting solution.
These anchors work by extending from your wall to hard-packed soil under your home that braces the foundation wall. They are installed with minimal disruption to your lawn and do not damage your basement.
