Expert Bowed Basement Walls in Waterford, 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. 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

A lot of homeowners want to know why they have this problem to begin with. 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. 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 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. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather.
