Professional Bowed Basement Walls in Winona, 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

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. 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. Clay-rich soil around your home absorbs a TON of moisture when it rains. 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. 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

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. Next, a wall plate will be attached to the wall inside of the home. 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.
