Straighten Bowing Basement Walls Over Time WITHOUT Excavation
Professional Engineer-Stamped Gorilla Wall Braces® can also straighten most walls over time with no excavation to the exterior of the home. A constant pressure can be kept on the bracket by regularly tightening the screw at the top of each Gorilla Wall Brace®. This pressure will slowly move the beam to plumb. As the beam moves, the basement wall will also move back to its original position, straightening the basement wall without any exterior excavation.
Straighten Bowed Basement Walls with Metal I-Joists and Spancrete Ceilings
Gorilla Wall Braces® can be used in basements without a wood floor joist ceiling. Many newer houses with bowing walls have ceilings of 16-24 inch I-Joists made with 2 inch x 4 inch bridging, and steel bridging, while others are made with plywood. Gorilla Wall Braces® can be attached to the modern “I floor joist” in these newer homes with only minor modifications.
Gorilla Wall Braces® Review
Jerry W. in Brownsville, MN wrote…
“The Gorilla Braces worked GREAT! I had a block wall with a 4 inch bow. After the braces were in place and it was excavated outside along the wall… I began to tighten the Gorilla Wall Braces, just a couple turns every hour or so. In 3 days time the bow was almost totally gone. See the attached pictures.”
