Shirley was out doing yard work when she noticed a large separation in her home’s foundation. As she went inside to investigate her situation more, she began noticing stair-step cracking throughout the foundation. She quickly reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have a specialist assess her situation.
Upon arrive, Mac had discussed the solution of PowerBraces. A PowerBrace is an I-Beam system that uses the wooden floor joist system of the home to properly distribute the correct force needed to support the wall, without damaging the rest of the home. It has a patented tightening feature that helps keep the appropriate pressure on the walls, while having the potential to straighten the wall over time. The PowerBrace’s tightening feature will also help close the foundation gaps that Shirley had noticed outside her home.
