Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a problem that can quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are bowing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to get worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
