Basement Wall Bracing | Serious Structural Home Foundation Problems

 Bowing Foundation Wall Repair

Many homeowners are unaware of a structural wall failing or bowing, and can go years without noticing or addressing the problem since some bowed walls leak very little water at all. You may notice a horizontal crack in your basement wall, which indicates a bow in your foundation.

There are a few reasons why a foundation wall begins to bow. The main reason is outside lateral pressure pushing against your foundation wall, creating this horizontal cracking and bowing effect.

We use a simple and inexpensive structural repair system, which uses vertical steel I-beams to repair the problem. We can also (in some cases) take an extra step and excavate from the outside in order to push your wall back into place, then use vertical steel I-beams from the inside to support your foundation wall from any further bowing.
