Steel beams are another tool used to help those bowed walls in your home. These are used to give the walls stability and structural integrity. Steel beams are installed vertically along the inside of basement walls. Depending on the severity of the bow a wall push might be necessary. This is when the exterior is excavated to the footer. This opens the wall and the beams are set in pockets in the basement floor. Once the beams are set the walls will be pushed by the beams. These beams will be anchored to the footer and the floor joists. We will then fill the level pockets with concrete. After this is complete the technicians will waterproof the exterior of the wall. This will then be filled with dirt and gravel to keep the pressure of the repaired wall. This is a multistep process that needs to be completed and molded depending on your home. If this is left untreated it could cause more damage and cost more in the long run. Quality Waterproofing is trained and ready to tackle this for you.
