So we like to use a PowerBrace if you have limited space between your property lines, if there are underground obstructions, or if you have a bowing or cracked wall and you cannot use a Geo-Lock wall anchor. When we do not use PowerBraces is in finished basements and if there are a lot of obstacles in the way that might be costly to move- sewer lines, gas lines, shelving, cabinets- whatever might be in the way. Remember we have to go up against the foundation wall in order to install it. Remember if you have a cracked or bowed or leaning wall or you feel just insecure with what you have, you can always give us a call here at Dry Guys and we can come out and do an estimate and inspection of your property and show you how to fix it, get that peace of mind back.
