Professional Bowed Basement Walls in Almora

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. Your home may be fairly new, and you may think that the foundation is in pretty good, solid shape. Regardless of how old your home is, or what kind of time you put into its upkeep, you could still experience this foundation problem. The main cause of the issue is hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. Clay-rich soil around your home absorbs a TON of moisture when it rains. This moisture causes the earth to expand and put a lot of pressure on your foundation walls. Over time, this causes the walls to lean into the home. Fortunately, total wall replacement isn't the only solution to this problem anymore.

A Bowed Wall Being Repaired

Fixing Bowing Walls

To take care of the problem, we can install SafeBasements™ wall anchors. 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. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather.
