Local Bowed Basement Walls in Wahkon, 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. Obviously, nobody wants this problem in their home. That's why it is a far better idea to let the experts take a look at your wall, and then they will advise you as to what the plan of action is for getting it upright once again.

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. 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. Over time, this causes the walls to lean into the 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

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. Next, a wall plate will be attached to the wall inside of the home. 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. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather.
