Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are bowing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse.

To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
