How to Fix a Stone Foundation - Image 1

If you have a stone foundation that's showing signs of damage, such as cracks or bulges, it's important to address the issue as soon as possible. Ignoring foundation problems can lead to serious structural issues and expensive repairs down the road.

Luckily, there are several solutions available to fix a stone foundation. The good news is that full foundation replacement is usually not required.

PowerBrace System:

The PowerBrace system is a patented, adjustable steel I-beam solution designed to stabilize bowing or buckling foundation walls. It's installed in the basement or crawl space and uses the existing concrete floor and floor joists for support. The PowerBrace system is designed to address foundation wall problems caused by soil pressure, foundation settlement, and hydrostatic pressure. One of the benefits of the PowerBrace system is that it can be installed without any disruption to the surrounding landscaping, making it a non-invasive solution.

EverBrace System:

The EverBrace system is another adjustable steel I-beam solution designed to stabilize foundation walls. Like the PowerBrace system, it uses the existing floor and floor joists for support. The EverBrace system is designed to address problems with foundation walls caused by hydrostatic pressure, soil pressure, and foundation settlement. The EverBrace system can be installed in a single day, and it doesn't require any excavation, which means there's no mess or disruption to the surrounding area. One of the benefits of the EverBrace system is that it's designed to last for the lifetime of the structure.


ShotLock is a high-pressure concrete injection system designed to repair cracks in foundation walls. The process involves injecting a specially formulated cement mixture into the cracks, which expands and hardens, effectively sealing the crack and providing additional support to the foundation wall. ShotLock is an effective solution for repairing foundation wall cracks caused by settlement, soil pressure, or freeze/thaw cycles. One of the benefits of ShotLock is that it's a cost-effective and non-invasive solution. It can be installed quickly and doesn't require any excavation or demolition.

In conclusion, there are several solutions available to fix a stone foundation, and the best solution for your home will depend on the specific issues you're facing. The PowerBrace and EverBrace systems are designed to stabilize foundation walls, while ShotLock is designed to repair cracks. All three solutions are non-invasive, cost-effective, and can be installed quickly.
