Professional Bowed Basement Walls in Askov

Home With A Bowed Basement Wall

Nobody wants to go down the stairs into their basement to see a wall tilting inside. 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. Why is it so important to act fast? Letting the problem go could mean a wall collapsing into your home. 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

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. However, you need to understand that it doesn't matter how old or new your home is, you can still have this 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 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. 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 installation process begins with the anchor being installed in stable, strong soil deep within the earth. After the anchor is in place, a plate will be attached on the basement wall that is damaged. The anchor and plate will be connected to each other with a metal rod that can be tightened over time to push the wall into the straight, vertical position where it needs to be. Set up for these products is fairly fast, and not much excavation is required for the job.
