We prefer to excavate the dirt against the wall to relieve the pressure. This helps the wall to move back to as close to original as possible. We can install the I-Beams against the wall without digging it out. This can move the wall slightly, but at the very least stabilize it. Sometimes, the I-Beams need to be manufactured specifically to go around plumbing or other obstacles.
The Reinforcer System
The Reinforcer System does not pull the wall back; it stabilizes unstable walls and isn't quite as intrusive as the I-Beams. The Reinforcer is made of 1/4-inch-thick carbon fiber that is four inches wide and epoxied to the wall. Both can be painted. In the right application, this is the perfect solution.
The Damaging Effects of Foundation Settling
Sinking foundations, cracked and buckled walls, and uneven floors are problems commonly faced when homes and other structures situated on unstable soils settle when their foundations are subjected to extreme conditions.
Some Problems Include:
Foundation Walls Are Buckled or Bowed
Doors and Windows That Stick or Don't Open Properly
Cracks in Foundation Walls
Cracks in Exterior Walls
Cracks in Interior Walls and Ceilings
Sunken or Buckled Interior Concrete Floors
