Since time immemorial homeowners with severely damaged foundation walls were told the unfortunate news that they had only one solution to their problem...full foundation wall replacement. This is an extremely invasive and expensive repair that is usually the most expensive a homeowner can face. When done correctly, following all OSHA protocol and including landscaping and other associated repairs, the bill is usually in the tens of thousands. Even worse, the new wall is put in the same conditions with the same acting forces as before.
These repairs were extremely intrusive and had a high degree of risk to the property and safety of those in the work area. OSHA highly regulates trench safety to ensure a safe worksite, but the knowledge needed to execute these protocols is extensive. Additionally, and most importantly for a homeowner to understand, these protocols greatly increase the time and work needed to perform the job safety and dramatically increase costs and impact to the area.
The foundation repair industry had no viable alternative until Foundation SupportWorks created the EverBrace Wall Restoration System.
The EverBrace™ Wall Restoration System will stabilize even the most severe cases of foundation wall failure from the inside with NO DIGGING! If walls have buckled, bowed, or cracked over time due to hydrostatic pressure, EverBrace will permanently stabilize and restore the structure. This is done by transferring the load from the failing foundation walls to the new steel system placed by Keystone Basement Systems. The repaired walls get a 25-year transferable warranty as well!
EverBrace is considerably less disruptive and expensive than total foundation replacement. Keystone Basement Systems attaches steel beams to the concrete slab and floor joists, then installs steel panels that span between them for further support. Any voids are filled by an injection of specialized rigid foam behind the steel panels that fills all the gaps. EverBrace becomes the new support system for the structure, permanently transferring the load from compromised foundation walls.
If you have issues with bowing, buckling, or cracked foundation walls, Keystone Basement Systems has the solutions you need to stabilize your home's foundation. Our experienced foundation professionals will carefully evaluate your home and work with you to determine the best solution for your needs.
