When the Footing of the home is too small to attach the lower bracket without fear of it cracking off, a new footing is made out of cut of concrete.
The Powerbrace is attached to the new footing at the bottom and a Bridgte bracket at the top.
Different brackets are used depending on the orientation of the floor joists.
The Cross Beam supports the wall between the two Powerbraces when they are a further distance apart such as under a window.
once the county has signed off on the work, the floor is restored giving extra support.
Supporting the wall between Powerbraces.
Tyler M. Has a home in Caledonia and some of the walls are bowing and cracking. This is a block foundation and left untreated, the wall would eventually fail. Phill from Omni Basement systems recommended along with a P. Eng. Our Powerbrace systems from Supportworks. The Powerbrace system consists of 4” galvanized “I” Beams which are attached to the footing of the home and at the top to the floor joist system. These braces are adjustable so they can be used to not only support the wall but straighten it over time. Brant county has signed off on this work.
