Bowed Basement Wall Repair in Reynoldsburg, OH

Project Manager: Jarrod McDonald


Foreman: Jessie Hall


Customer Name: Joyce & Everett B.


Location: Powell, OH 43065

Problem:

The homeowners called in because they noticed their basement walls were bowing. It’s popular belief that a house is only as solid as its foundation. Bowed walls can start out as a small issue, but untreated they can turn into a major problem! Not wanting everything that matters to literally “cave in”, this caused great concern. Looking for someone to solve the problem, the homeowners called The Basement Doctor!



Solution:

The Basement Doctor sent Project Manager Jarrod McDonald out to the residence. Jarrod examined the wall and discussed options with the homeowners to solve the problem. Jarrod concluded that the bowed walls needed Force Beams. The Force Beam is an I Beam tension loaded wall stabilizer and is designed to bring bowing or buckling walls back into place. Our certified team of Basement Doctor professionals were “on the job” and installed the beams successfully. They not only brought stability to the walls, but peace of mind to the homeowners themselves.

Anything special that stood out to you in this project:

In our business, we find that shortcuts aren’t the answer in fixing the problem. People tend to look for the cheapest and quickest way out, but pay for their decisions down the line. The homeowner had Everdry out and they offered their solution. They proposed installing a perimeter drain on the inside and outside. While they would be installing the outside drain, they would coat the wall with hydraulic cement. This obviously would not have supported the wall, as it was bowing inward, and could’ve caused a nightmare for the homeowner to deal with.
