IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System 

If you have cracks or bowing walls in your basement, it can be dangerous for your home and family. It is best to be proactive by keeping your house stable and repairing damage as soon as possible. The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System is a patented solution that can help. 

Ohio Basement Systems offers advanced basement repair solutions to secure your home’s structure. Learn more here about the IntelliBrace™ system and its benefits so that you can make the most 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 standard I-beams, IntelliBrace™ beams are anchored securely to the floor joists and the floor, ensuring maximum rigidity. These beams instantly secure the wall against further deterioration and offer the potential for future incremental adjustments. 

The IntelliBrace™ System can be tightened over time, guiding bowed or tilted walls back towards a straighter, more vertical position.

How Ohio Basement Systems Installs the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System 

1. Thorough Inspection 

We start with a free, no-obligation inspection of your home to determine the extent and nature of the damage to your basement. Our experts will evaluate the requirements for this solution, take precise measurements, and indicate the installation location for the beams.  

2. Cut the Beams 

Prior to installation, our crew will cut each beam to fit your basement’s specific wall height. We tailor our solutions to your home, minimizing time wastage and ensuring accurate completion.  

3. Install Floor Joist Components 

Each brace securely fastens to a floor joist near the upper mudsill of the wall. After installation, the large-diameter bolt secured to the floor joist may be adjusted if needed. Your floor framework won’t be harmed by an IntelliBrace™ installation. Before proposing this repair method, our experts examine the strength of your floor joists to ensure proper functionality. 

4. Position Each Beam 

To ensure the correct functioning of the IntelliBrace™ system, each I-beam must be plumb or vertical. The installation crew will adjust the position of each beam using a level to prepare for the next stage. 

5. Anchor Beams to the Floor 

 All beams are secured to the concrete basement floor using a unique bolt-in-place bracket. Unlike traditional wall repair techniques, the IntelliBrace™ System spans the entire height of the basement walls. As a result, the IntelliBrace™ technology will fix any wall issue—from walls that bow in the center, tilt inward from the top, or slide inward from the bottom (AKA shearing walls). 

6. Tighten Beams 

The IntelliBrace™ system’s floor joist anchor with an adjustable bolt makes it unique from other I-beam wall repair systems. This large-diameter bolt can be tightened over time to slowly adjust the walls’ positions. You can also schedule regular maintenance to ensure the continued protection of your home.

FAQs

Bowing basement walls are often caused by hydrostatic pressure from moisture-rich soil outside the foundation. This pressure can cause the walls to bend or even crack, leading to further damage. 

No, the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System requires professional installation by trained and experienced basement repair experts like those at Ohio Basement Systems. Attempting to DIY basement repairs could lead to further damage or safety risks.

The IntelliBrace™ system is a minimally invasive repair method that can be done from the inside of your basement, so it is less likely to damage your yard or landscaping. While minor disturbances may occur during installation, our team will work to minimize any impact on your property.
