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. 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. 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 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.
