The Gorilla Wall Brace System effectively stabilizes bowing or buckling foundation walls from inside your basement without any disturbance to the outside of your home. The galvanized steel beams brace your foundation wall against the expansive outside soil forces pushing against it. The beams are attached to the concrete basement floor and the wooden joists above. The braces stop the buckling wall from moving inward any further.

Wall Bracing


Gorilla Wall Braces have the ability to move bowed foundation walls back into place. A small trenching machine can be used next to the foundation on the outside to alleviate soil pressure on the foundation wall. The Gorilla Wall Braces apply pressure on the wall until they push the bowed wall back into place. Most of the time this work can all be done in one day. Gorilla Wall Braces can also straighten most walls over time with no excavation to the exterior of the home. A constant pressure can be kept on the bracket by tightening the screw at the top. This pressure will slowly move the beam to plumb. As the beam moves, the wall will also move back to its original position without any exterior excavation. The innovative floor bracket allows for the installation of the Gorilla Wall Brace without removal of the concrete floor.

The Gorilla Wall Brace utilizes the support of three joists instead of one like most other systems. The Gorilla Wall Brace triples the strength of other systems on the market that just push off of one joist. Utilizing three joists, the Gorilla Wall Brace distributes the wall loads evenly to the floor joists. This prevents the wood joists from twisting or buckling. Employing three joists also gives the Gorilla Wall Brace tremendous pushing power when straightening the wall. Pushing off of three joists allows the Gorilla Wall Brace system to straighten almost any bowed or cracked wall. The use of multiple wooden joists will give you the peace of mind in knowing your foundation walls and wood framing will keep your home and family safe and secure.
