Wall braces can be used for bowed walls, deep wall cracks, and a variety of other problems brought on by foundation settlement or sinking. Wall braces are usually metal beams attached to the inner surface walls in your basement or crawl space to strengthen the area. Anchoring, meanwhile, involves directing a metal rod down through the foundation into the soil underneath. The base of the rod anchors the foundation, while the top of the rod is attached to the walls to make sure they're upright.
The Basement Doctor WV relies on a number of wall bracing techniques for bowed walls and other structural problems. These wall braces successfully support your basement walls, in turn protecting your greatest investment, your house. Heavy-duty, zinc-plated metal beams are custom-fit to your basement wall structure height. The beam can then be attached securely against your basement wall using heavy-duty steel brackets which are attached to your basement floors and floor joists. The metal beams will support the wall in its present position, without having further adjustments.

The Force Bracket is a patent pending structural tension loaded I-beam wall repair system which is made to straighten block or concrete walls as time passes. This is definitely a significant development in foundation repair, and it all takes place automatically without any work from the homeowner.
The secret is the unique patented spring-coil design applying 1,000 pounds of continuous restorative pressure against the foundation wall. In the course of hot dry weather conditions, the soil surrounding the foundation wall surfaces gets dry, pulling away from the house and decreases its pressure on the wall surfaces. That's the greatest time to return a wall to a plumb condition.
