IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System

If you have cracks or bowing walls in your basement, it may pose a risk to the structure of your home and to your family. To ensure the stability of your home and address any damage, we recommend taking a proactive approach. The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System is a patented solution that can assist in this regard. 

Baker’s Waterproofing provides advanced basement repair solutions to maintain the structural integrity of your home. Follow this link to learn more about the IntelliBrace™ system and how it can benefit you, allowing you to make an informed decision for the safety of your home. 

What Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System?

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

Unlike standard I-beams, IntelliBrace™ beams are anchored securely both to the floor joists and the floor, ensuring maximum rigidity. While these beams instantly secure the wall against any further deterioration, they also offer the potential for incremental adjustments. 

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

6 Signs You Need IntelliBrace™

If you have noticed potential structural issues in your basement, the IntelliBrace™ system from Baker’s can help. Key indicators include: 

Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System Necessary?

If you have bowing basement walls, then yes, and it’s important to get your wall reinforced immediately. Delaying repairs will only make matters worse and result in higher costs down the line.  

That’s why we recommend implementing the IntelliBrace™ system at the first sign of trouble. This innovative basement repair solution is part of our comprehensive whole-home approach, which ensures that every aspect of your property is protected. 

We tailor our solutions to your basement’s specific needs. While the IntelliBrace™ system is often the best choice, we may recommend other products like wall anchors, channel anchors, or carbon fiber straps. These alternatives also provide excellent protection for your home. 

Don’t hesitate to contact our team for a thorough, no-obligation inspection and estimate. We’ll ensure that your home is safeguarded according to its unique requirements.

  • It takes up minimal interior space. 
  • It allows for installation inside the basement with minimal excavation outside. 

Overall, the IntelliBrace™ system is a powerful and effective solution for addressing basement issues, ensuring long-term stability and safety while also addressing immediate structural problems. 

How Baker’s Installs the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System

Step 1. Free 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 verify the need for this solution, take precise measurements, and mark where the beams should be installed. 

Step 2: Cut the Beams to Size

Before installing the system, our crew will cut each beam to fit the specific wall height of your basement. We take great care to ensure that our solutions are custom-built for your home, which saves time and ensures the job is done right. 

Step 3: Install Floor Joist Components

Next, the top of each brace is fastened to a floor joist close to the top mudsill of the wall. A large-diameter bolt is secured to the floor joist and can be adjusted and tightened after installation. The installation of an IntelliBrace™ won’t harm your floor framework. Before proposing this repair method, our experts will examine the strength of your floor joists to ensure proper functionality. 

Step 4: Position Each Beam

For the IntelliBrace™ system to work correctly, each I-beam must be plumb or vertical. Our installation crew adjusts the position of each beam using a level to prepare for the next stage. 

Step 5: Anchor Beams to the Floor

To complete the installation, all beams are secured to the concrete basement floor using a unique bolt-in-place bracket. The IntelliBrace™ System spans the entire height of the basement walls, unlike traditional wall repair techniques. As a result, it can be used to 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). 

Step 6: Tighten the Beams to Straighten the Wall

The IntelliBrace™ system has a floor joist anchor with an adjustable bolt that sets it apart from other I-beam wall repairs. This large-diameter bolt can be tightened over time to slowly adjust the walls’ positions. You can schedule regular maintenance of our solutions 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 Baker’s Waterproofing. Attempting to DIY foundation repairs could lead to further damage or safety risks. 

The IntelliBrace™ system is designed to be installed inside the basement with minimal excavation outside, so it should not cause significant damage to your yard or landscaping. However, minor disturbances may occur during installation, and our team will work to minimize any impact to your property.
