How We Reinforce Deflecting Cinder Block Walls In Your Basement.

The key to the system of reinforcing deflecting walls utilizes steel beams, commonly known as H beams or I-beams. Whatever the licensed Virginia engineer recommends for the steel to be utilized to stabilize your deflecting cinder block walls will be utilized. Structural steel is called out in the standards such as W-1260. A steel H beam that is called out in this fashion means the beam is 12 inches thick and weighs 60 pounds per foot. The first step in installing a cinder block steel-reinforced system to stop the deflection in your Northern Virginia home is to jackhammer up the concrete according to the placement of the steel beams. Typically we excavate two feet and then install the steel I-beam into your basement concrete floor. After the I-beam has been installed into the broken basement footing system we will fill that area with 4000 psi concrete The next step is to attach the welded plate that is installed into your floor joists with the appropriate bolting system. The final step is to grout the area between the deflection of your basement wall to the steel I-beam so that there is a solid connection.
