Get the Support of I-Beams
I-BEAMS ARE SUPPORT UNITS THAT ARE USED WHEN SECTIONS OF A FOUNDATION WALL ARE SIGNIFICANTLY DISPLACED
Great Lakes Waterproofing uses best practice installation guidelines, as suggested by the International Building Code.
At Great Lakes Waterproofing, we don’t adhere to minimum requirements.
GREAT LAKES WATERPROOFING FOLLOWS ENGINEER-DEVELOPED BEST PRACTICES
We use steel I-beams and adhere to building code requirements of fastening them to the strongest supports in the structure: the footing and sill plate. Additionally, we distribute the pressure by attaching a secure steel plate to floor joists. This best practice method allows for some natural settling of the structure while also maintaining foundation stability.
