Entrust your home to JES—a leading provider of advanced basement repair solutions—to safeguard your home’s structural integrity. 

Gain a deeper understanding of our IntelliBrace™ system, its advantages, and the reasons behind its necessity, to empower yourself in making the best decision for your home. 

What Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System? 

The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System is a patented innovation designed to stabilize failing basement walls. 

Unlike standard I-beams, IntelliBrace™ beams are anchored securely to the floor joists (see image below) and the floor, ensuring maximum rigidity. While these beams instantly secure the wall against further deterioration, they also offer the potential for incremental adjustments. 

The IntelliBrace™ System can be tightened over time, gradually guiding bowed walls back towards a straighter, more vertical position. 

What the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System Fixes 

If your basement walls display signs of structural distress or other basement issues, like pooling water, it may be time to consider the IntelliBrace™ solution. Key indicators include: 

Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System Necessary? 

Certainly. Delaying the repair of structural issues in your basement not only exacerbates the damage but also escalates the eventual repair costs. 

Implementing the IntelliBrace™ system at the earliest sign of trouble ensures the safety of your home. This innovative solution also forms a pivotal component of our comprehensive whole-home approach, tailored to protect every facet of your property. 

Because we customize solutions to meet your basement’s specific needs, repairs might not require the IntelliBrace™ system. Our other products—including wall anchors, channel anchors, and carbon fiber straps—also offer superb protection. 

Consult our team for a comprehensive, free inspection and no-obligation estimate to ensure your home is safeguarded according to its specific needs. 

What Are the Benefits of the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System? 

  • Minimal Installation Disruption: The IntelliBrace™ system is installed inside your basement, so outside excavation is unnecessary. The beams also occupy minimal space within your basement. 
  • Advanced Stabilization: The IntelliBrace™ beams offer enhanced stability compared to traditional I-beams, robustly securing your home’s basement walls
  • Potential Wall Straightening: Beyond stabilization, the system allows homeowners to straighten their walls over time, restoring structural integrity. 
  • Proprietary Excellence: Our exclusive product development ensures homeowners get one of the best solutions on the market. 

How JES Installs the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System 

At JES, we have over 20 years of experience installing basement repair solutions that last, and we do it for thousands of homeowners just like you every year. 

Here’s how we install our very own IntelliBrace™ system: 

  • 1. Thorough Inspection 

As we’ve mentioned, the best way to determine if the IntelliBrace™ system is right for your home is through a comprehensive assessment by our JES experts. 

During the inspection, they will verify the need for this solution, take precise measurements, and mark where the beams should be installed. 

  • 2. Cut the Beams 

Before installing the system, our crew cuts each beam to fit your basement’s specific wall height. 

You can rest easy knowing these revolutionary beams and other system components are made of strong, rust-resistant steel. 

  • 3. Install Floor Joist Components 

The top of each brace is then fastened to a floor joist close to the top mudsill of the wall. A large-diameter bolt secured to the floor joist may be adjusted and tightened after installation. 

Your floor framework won’t be harmed by an IntelliBrace™ installation. Before proposing this repair method, our experts will examine the strength of your floor joists to ensure proper functionality. 

  • 4. Position Each Beam 

Each I-beam must be plumb or vertical for the IntelliBrace™ system to function correctly. To prepare for the following stage, the installation crew will adjust the position of each beam using a level. 

  • 5. Anchor Beams to the Floor 

All beams are then secured to the concrete basement floor using a unique bolt-in-place bracket to complete the installation. 

The IntelliBrace™ System spans the whole height of the basement walls, in contrast to traditional wall repair techniques. The IntelliBrace™ technology may thus be used to fix walls that bow and buckle in the center, tilt inward from the top, or slide inward from the bottom. 

  • 6. Tighten Beams 

The floor joist anchor with adjustable bolt is what sets the IntelliBrace™ system apart from other I-beam repair solutions. This large-diameter bolt can be tightened over time to slowly adjust the walls’ positions. It’s best to leave this task to our team, who can perform scheduled service and maintenance yearly. 

As you can see, the installation can be complex. But you can trust JES for safe, flawless, and efficient installation.

FAQs

Periodic adjustments can be made based on the wall’s condition, typically annually. This is best left to the JES service team and our annual maintenance plan. 

The beams protrude from basement walls but with minimal disruption. While noticeable, their presence ensures your home’s safety and can be concealed by finishing your basement. 

Installation duration varies based on wall conditions, but most projects are completed within a day. For an accurate timeline, consult with our team.
