75 Year Old Home with Extreme Wall Failure in Oregan

Nicole and Gabae recently bought a 75-year-old dairy barn that had been converted into a home. Unfortunately, this home had a bowing wall and a few water issues, common issues found in older homes. With plans to stay for the long-term, they knew they had to get it fixed sooner rather than later. 

They had contacted another company, but their solution was invasive and involved removing the front porch altogether. Then they called Thrasher. We sent out System Design Specialist Eric Wulf to take a look at the problem.

Eric found that the wall was pushed inward 5 1/8 inches, the door above the area was sticking, and muddy water was entering the basement. He concluded that this was due to water weight, expanding soil, and the freeze/thaw cycle that caused the top of that foundation wall to move inward over a period of time. 

Eric decided the best course of action was to use our EverBrace Wall Restoration System. EverBrace is used for extreme wall failure. It's less disruptive than total foundation replacement, but still just as effective. It uses steel corrugated panels and beams to strengthen and stabilize foundation walls.

Our install team then got on-site and started to get to work. They installed galvanized steel panels with structural I-beams bracing them. They then sprayed structural foam between the steel panels and the original foundation wall to fill any voids between the new wall and the original wall.

Nicole and Gabae were so happy with the results and so happy they didn't have to compromise their front porch for a fixed foundation.
