CASE STUDIES

Bowing walls in Underwood

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014 by Eric Rysdam

Challenge

Dan had a bowing wall that was shearing and was pushing on interior walls, which was causing damage to walls.  Water was leaking into the home on parts of wall.  A second wall was also starting to crack, but not bowing quite as much.

 

Solution

We excavated the soil on the exterior wall to relieve the pressure, allowing the power braces to  slide the wall back as good as possible. We installed the water guard and clean space wall on the walls to help contain water and keep his storage contents dry.  We also connected to a super sump. On the wall that was starting to crack we installed Carbon Fiber to keep the walls from getting any worse than they already were.

Comments:  Dan was happy with the turn out of the project, we got movement out of the wall and carbon armor turned out great!
