Home With A Bowed Basement Wall

If you go into your basement and notice that there's a wall leaning into your home, you need to get this problem taken care of immediately. It can be alarming to come across a wall in this kind of condition, but putting off the repair work is only going to cause more problems for your entire home. 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. Obviously, nobody wants this problem in their home. 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

A lot of homeowners want to know why they have this problem to begin with. 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. The main cause of the issue is 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 moisture causes the earth to expand and put a lot of pressure on your foundation walls. As time goes on, this will eventually push the wall into your home. Fortunately, total wall replacement isn't the only solution to this problem anymore.

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.
