Foundation Repair Case Studies: Bowing Basement Walls in Princeton

Friday, July 15th, 2016 by Thomas Weinert


The homeowner of this Princeton home was experiencing bowing walls in their basement. The homeowner contacted BQ Basement Systems after finding us at the Mercer County Freedom Festival. After setting up a free estimate with BQ, our sales representative found a solution to the homeowners problem. The homeowner decided to go ahead with both the product and solution suggested by our sales representative.


The solution the homeowner went ahead with was the PowerBrace. The PowerBrace is designed to support basement walls and allow for potential straightening over time. Since the beam and other components were covered in zinc it makes the entire system resistant to corrosion, reduces abrasion and wear, and creates a non-toxic surface. PowerBrace utilizes a joist reinforcement method which distributes the load evenly as not to damage your wood floor system. When installed properly and in the right application, there is not another I-Beam system available that offers the benefits of PowerBrace.
