Bowed Walls

Unstable soils are a basements worst enemy, whether the antagonists are expansive clay or compressible or improperly compacted fill. They launch a sneak attack by leaving foundations unevenly supported, triggering settlement and cracking. They can also barrage basement walls with lateral loads, causing walls to bow inward. As many homeowners can attest, the battle scars from all of this damage can be devastating to real estate values.

Many homeowners have experienced the major inconvenience and financial setback of repairing or replaceing a failed wall, only to endure the demanding process again. The wall was simply not strong enough to withstand the pressures of the soils surrounding their home. Whether the movement of your wall has been extensive or minimal, we offer you the permanent, cost effective, solution.

To prevent bowed walls be sure that the ground slopes away from your house and that gutters & downspouts are working properly. This will ensure that water drains away from the foundation of your home.
