What Is the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System?
The IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System is a patented innovation designed to stabilize failing basement walls.
IntelliBrace™ beams differ from standard I-beams in that they are anchored to the floor joists and the floor, providing maximum rigidity to the structure. These beams immediately secure the wall against further deterioration, and allow for incremental adjustments.
With the IntelliBrace™ System, gradual tightening over time can help guide bowed or tilted walls back toward a straighter, more vertical position.

How BQ Installs the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System
1. Free Inspection
We start with a free, no-obligation inspection of your home to determine the extent and nature of the damage to your basement. Our experts will verify the need for this solution, take precise measurements, and mark where the beams should be installed.
2. Cut the Beams to Size
With BQ, you get tailored basement solutions that meet your unique needs.
We inspect your basement before installing the system to determine the wall height. Then, we cut each beam to fit your specific dimensions. Our solutions are custom-built for your home, saving time and ensuring the job is done right the first time. You can trust our attention to detail and workmanship for peace of mind.
3. Install Floor Joist Components
To install an IntelliBrace™, the upper portion of each brace is secured to a floor joist positioned near the upper mudsill of the wall using a thick bolt. After installation, the bolt can be adjusted and tightened. IntelliBrace™ won’t damage your floor framework. Our team of experts examine your floor joists’ strength before recommending this repair method to ensure proper functioning. H3: Step 4: Position Each Beam
The IntelliBrace™ systemrequires each I-beam to be plumb or vertical. Our installation crew will adjust the position of each beam using a level in preparation for the next stage.
4. Anchor Beams to the Floor
The final installation step includes securing all beams to the concrete basement floor using a unique bolt-in-place bracket. The IntelliBrace™ System spans the entire height of the basement walls, unlike traditional wall repair techniques. As a result, it can be used to fix any wall issue.
5. Tighten the Beams to Potentially Straighten the Wall
The IntelliBrace™ system has a floor joist anchor with an adjustable bolt that differentiates it from other I-beam wall repairs. This large-diameter bolt can be tightened over time to slowly adjust the walls’ positions. You can schedule regular maintenance of our solutions to ensure the continued protection of your home.

Bowing basement walls are typically caused by hydrostatic pressure from moisture-rich soil surrounding the foundation. This pressure can lead to the walls bending or cracking, resulting in further damage.
No. Professional installation by trained and experienced basement repair experts is required to install the IntelliBrace™ Wall Repair System. Attempting to DIY foundation repairs could lead to further damage or safety risks.
The IntelliBrace™ system is designed for installation on the basement interior with minimal exterior excavation, so it should not cause significant damage to your yard or landscaping. However, minor disturbances may occur during installation. Our team will work to minimize any impact to your property.
