Another view of what the foundation wall looked like before the Auxiliary wall was installed.
The first step to setting up the Auxiliary wall is to set up the Power Brace to set up and hold the wall in place.
After putting in the power brace the next step is to install some rebar.
The third step is to set up the temporary wall so the crew can pour the concrete between the temporary wall and the foundation wall.
The final step is removing the temporary wall after the concrete was poured and cured.
This homeowner in Pepperell, Massachusetts has a home that was built in the 1820s. The rock foundation of the home was starting to shift and they wanted to know what their options were. Design Specialist Nick Carelli came to the home and talked through some of the options that would help secure the foundation. Nick proposed the use of auxiliary walls and Smart Jacks to prevent the walls from bowing in anymore. Nick Carelli and his team came to the home and installed the Auxiliary walls and Smart Jacks into the dirt basement.
