Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix bowing foundation walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer.
