Horizontal basement wall cracks or bowing, bulging walls spell trouble for foundations. Expansive soils that swell with water press against your foundation walls and cause major structural problems. Fortress' wall stabilization solutions are engineer-designed and tested to permanently repair your foundation walls.
Any of our patented Wall System solutions will stabilize and potentially straighten your foundation walls back to their original position. Based on your foundation repair needs, Fortress may recommend:
Supportworks' Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are designed to halt foundation problems such as bowing or tilting walls, horizontal cracks, and inward sliding walls. Fortress' in-house contractors will come to your home to install the wall anchor system in your home. After this wall stabilization solution is installed, your foundation walls will permanently stop moving. These wall anchors are made of galvanized steel which protects them against long-term corrosion and ensures your home will be protected for years to come!
Fortress' CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System is different from other wall anchor systems because it requires no digging for wall stabilization. Instead, the CarbonArmor strips adhere directly to your basement walls to strengthen the walls and correct foundation problems. This foundation repair technique is made with a fiber-reinforced polymer that's stronger than steel and the installation is complete in less than a day!
Bowing walls and buckling foundations are serious threats to your home, but sometimes your property line makes outside digging impossible for wall stabilization. Our PowerBrace System stabilizes walls as they are with steel i-beams. Each beam is cut exactly to match the height of your basement walls. The beams are attached to your home's floor joists - with no damage to the floor above - and your foundation floor. This will stabilize the wall from any further movement and the i-beam can be tightened over time to straighten the wall to its original place.
