IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System
A cracking and leaning wall might be entertaining in a carnival fun house, but it does not belong in your home. Basement walls with damage like cracks and inward bowing can pose serious risks to your home and family.
A proactive approach is the best way to repair the damage and ensure your home’s stability. The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System stands out as an innovative solution to counter these challenges.
Entrust your home to Ohio Basement Authority—the regional leader in advanced basement repair—to safeguard your home’s structural integrity.
Exploring this page will give you with a deeper understanding of our IntelliBrace™ system, its advantages, and the reasons behind its necessity, empowering you to make the best decision for your home.
What Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System?
The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System is a patented innovation explicitly designed to stabilize failing basement walls.
Unlike standard I-beams, IntelliBrace™ beams are anchored securely to the floor joists and the floor, ensuring maximum rigidity. While these beams instantly secure the wall against any further deterioration, they also offer the potential for incremental adjustments.
The IntelliBrace™ System can be tightened over time, gradually guiding bowed or tilted walls back towards a straighter, more vertical position.
What the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System Fixes
If your basement walls display signs of structural distress, it may be time to consider the IntelliBrace™ solution. Key indicators include:
- Visible cracks spreading across walls
- Noticeable bowing or leaning of walls
- Gaps developing between walls and the floor or ceiling
Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System Necessary?
Certainly. Putting off the repair of structural issues in your basement not only exacerbates the damage but also escalates the eventual repair costs.
Implementing the IntelliBrace™ system at the earliest sign of trouble ensures the safety of your home. This innovative solution also forms a pivotal component of our comprehensive whole-home approach, tailored to protect every facet of your property.
Because we customize solutions to meet your basement’s specific needs, repairs might not require the IntelliBrace™ system. Our other products—including wall anchors, channel anchors, and carbon fiber straps—also offer superb protection.
Consult our team for a comprehensive, free inspection and no-obligation estimate to ensure your home is safeguarded according to its specific needs.
What Are the Benefits of the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System?
- Minimal Installation Disruption: The IntelliBrace™ system is installed inside your basement, so outside excavation is unnecessary. The beams also occupy minimal space within your basement.
- Advanced Stabilization: The IntelliBrace™ beams offer enhanced stability compared to traditional I-beams, robustly securing your home’s basement walls.
- Potential Wall Straightening: Beyond stabilization, the system allows homeowners to straighten their walls over time, restoring structural integrity.
- Proprietary Excellence: Our exclusive product development ensures homeowners get the best solution on the market, unparalleled by generic, big box store options.
How We Install the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System
1. Thorough Inspection
As we’ve mentioned, the best way to determine if the IntelliBrace™ system is right for your home is through a comprehensive assessment by one of our experts.
During the inspection, they will verify the need for this solution, take precise measurements, and mark where the beams should be installed.
2. Cut the Beams
Before our crew installs the system, they cut each beam to fit your basement’s specific wall height.
You can rest easy knowing these revolutionary beams and other system components are made of strong, rust-resistant steel.
3. Install Floor Joist Components
The top of each brace is then fastened to a floor joist close to the top mudsill of the wall. A large-diameter bolt secured to the floor joist may be adjusted and tightened after installation.
Your floor framework won’t be harmed by an IntelliBrace™ installation. Before proposing this repair method, our experts will examine the strength of your floor joists to ensure proper functionality.
4. Position Each Beam
Each I-beam must be plumb or vertical for the IntelliBrace™ system to function correctly. To prepare for the following stage, the installation crew will adjust the position of each beam using a level.
5. Anchor Beams to the Floor
All beams are then secured to the concrete basement floor using a unique bolt-in-place bracket to complete the installation.
The IntelliBrace™ System spans the whole height of the basement walls, in contrast to traditional wall repair techniques. The IntelliBrace™ technology may thus be used to fix walls that bow and buckle in the center, tilt inward from the top, or slide inward from the bottom.
6. Tighten Beams
What sets the IntelliBrace™ system apart from other I-beam wall repair is its floor joist anchor with adjustable bolt.
This large-diameter bolt can be tightened over time to slowly adjust the walls’ positions. It’s best to leave this task to our team, who can perform scheduled service and maintenance yearly.
As you can see, the installation can be complex. But you can trust Ohio Basement Authority for safe, flawless, and efficient installation.
