Basempartially-below-grade-bowing-wall-repair-01ents in New Jersey are typically built below or partially below the ground floor. In this residence, the partially below grade basement had a sloped lawn that, when saturated, exerted additional force on the foundation wall.  By repairing and reinforcing the bowing wall, HJ3’s certified Stronghold installer was able to save the homeowner more than 80{f00316eaeff19fc4d3daa6454136ee4db9a0ad1868aa2a79e58a2db09827821d} compared to wall replacement.

 

Design Scope

Heavy rains had saturated the ground, causing water to collect at the base of the foundation wall. The pressure of the soil and water was more than the basement wall could withstand and it began to bow. Some cracking occurred as the wall bowed and resulted in minor leaking. The homeowner wanted a quick and stable repair solution.

Execution

The interior surface of the wall was prepared with a mechanical grinder to remove all paint and any loose concrete. It was then cleaned to remove any remaining dust or oils. The wall was primed in the prepared areas and the pre-cut StrongHold™ carbon fiber strips were saturated with StrongHold resin and installed on the wall.
