Marilyn was having concerns about her foundation. It had started to bow, causing the block foundation to shift, allowing for water to seep in during heavy rains. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her foundation inspected. Joe had offered her the solution of PowerBraces to permanently stabilize the walls. He also suggested excavating the dirt around the foundation to release pressure off the bowing wall and seal it with an asphalt damp proofing sealant. The sealant will help reduce water seepage, and will allow for a more effective solution to having the PowerBraces reverse the inward bow in the foundation. Marilyn has a stable foundation once again.
