Choosing the right solution for cracked or bowing walls in your basement is crucial for the safety of your home and family. Being proactive in stabilizing your house and repairing damage promptly is essential. The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System is a patented solution that Groundworks offers to help address these issues effectively.

Groundworks provides advanced foundation repair solutions to ensure your home’s structural integrity. Discover more about the IntelliBrace™ system and its benefits here, so you can make an informed decision for the safety of your home and family.

What Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System?

The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System is a patented innovation designed to stabilize failing basement walls.

Unlike traditional I-beams, IntelliBrace™ beams are securely anchored to the floor joists and the floor, providing maximum rigidity. These beams immediately secure the wall against further deterioration and allow for potential incremental adjustments over time.

The IntelliBrace™ System can be tightened gradually, helping to realign bowed or tilted walls back to a more vertical and straight position.

Before installation, our team customizes each beam to precisely match the height of your basement walls. This customization ensures an efficient process and accurate installation, tailored specifically to your home’s requirements.

3. Installation of Floor Joist Components

Each brace is securely attached to a floor joist near the upper mudsill of the wall. Once installed, the large-diameter bolts can be adjusted as necessary to ensure optimal performance. Our IntelliBrace™ system is designed to maintain the integrity of your floor structure, as we verify the strength of your floor joists prior to recommending this repair strategy.

4. Beam Positioning

Proper alignment of the IntelliBrace™ system is critical. Each beam must be perfectly vertical. Our installation team achieves this by meticulously leveling each beam before securing it in place.

5. Securing Beams to the Floor

The beams are anchored to the concrete basement floor using specialized bolt-in-place brackets. The IntelliBrace™ system is designed to address a variety of wall issues, whether your walls are bowing, tilting from the top, or sliding at the bottom.

6. Adjusting the Beams
