Basement Wall Bracing
Are your foundation walls cracking?
Most sub grade soil in Regina is highly plastic, potentially active type clay. This type of soil will undergo large volume changes when the water content increases or decreases in the clay. These volume changes combined with lateral soil pressures and deterioration due to aging exerts a sufficient amount of force to cause cracking and inward movement. Other contributing factors are tree roots, insufficient steel in concrete, water from leaky plumbing, mud jacking and poor drainage. If your walls have horizontal of vertical cracks causing inward movement to your foundation walls, JS Basement Works can protect them with engineered steel bracing designs that guarantee your wall from further movement.
