Foundation Repair Photo Album: PowerBraces and Cracks Sealed, Hudson, NH
This homeowner recently purchased their home in Hudson, New Hampshire. During the pre-purchase inspection, the inspector noticed there were some cracks in the foundation wall in the garage and the basement. These cracks worried the new homeowners, so they called EFS for a free inspection.
Senior Design Specialist Michael LaMalfa inspected the home. Michael found those same cracks in the basement and found that the wall is cracking because hydrostatic pressure is pushing in on the wall and causing it to crack. The homeowners are fortunate to have caught this as early as they did. If this is left untreated for months or years the wall could become unstable and collapse. Michael recommended installing PowerBraces to the wall and sealing the cracks in the foundation walls.
Crew Lead Nick Carelli and his team installed 2 PowerBraces and sealed the cracks in the foundation wall.
This wall is getting pushed in by hydrostatic pressure, which caused this crack in the wall.
Two PowerBraces are installed against the wall to stabilize it.
