Local Bowed Basement Walls in Akeley, Minnesota

Home With A Bowed Basement Wall

Nobody wants to go down the stairs into their basement to see a wall tilting inside. This can be really scary, but you shouldn't panic - you need to calm down and realize that it's a problem that needs to be fixed immediately. What a lot of homeowners don't realize is that a bowed wall will eventually collapse in on itself under the weight of the home if it's left untreated for too long. Needless to say, this is not something you want to deal with. It is smart to call our foundation repair experts ASAP to get the problem looked at and taken care of quickly.

Causes of Leaning Walls

So, you are likely wondering why your home is experiencing this common foundation problem. After all, they feel like they take good care of their property, and maybe their home isn't really even that old. Regardless of how old your home is, or what kind of time you put into its upkeep, you could still experience this foundation problem. It's caused from hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. If your home was built in clay-rich soil, it's going to absorb moisture very quickly whenever it rains, or when you have melting snow on your lawn. This causes the soil to swell up and it puts a lot of pressure (hydrostatic pressure) on your basement walls. As time goes on, this will eventually push the wall into your home. Luckily, there have been many advancements over the years in the repair industry, and wall replacement is no longer the only solution.

A Bowed Wall Being Repaired

Fixing Bowing Walls

We install SafeBasements™ wall anchors when homeowners having bowed walls in their homes. The anchors will be installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata next to the damaged wall. After the anchor is in place, a plate will be attached on the basement wall that is damaged. The two will be connected with a strong rod which can be tightened over time to provide the necessary lateral pressure to push the wall back into a straight position. Set up for these products is fairly fast, and not much excavation is required for the job.
