A great home requires a great foundation. Most of the time you can rest easy knowing you and your loved ones are safe and secure in your house, but when damage threatens to make your castle crumble, it’s time to call Premier Wall Anchor & Waterproofing to schedule your bowed wall repair.
How Walls Become Bowed
Rainy days and stagnant puddles aren’t just annoying. They can cause damage to your foundation. Heavy rainfall and poor drainage lead to over-saturation of the soil around your home. As the soil expands, pressure increases until the concrete blocks at the base of your house can no longer keep their shape. As pressure mounts, the walls of your foundation may buckle and bulge, creating worries ranging from structural weaknesses to cracks allowing seepage. Eventually, you could see irreparable damage to your flooring and furniture and even encounter an uninvited guest: mold.
Bowed Wall Repair Options
If you think your basement walls may be in need of professional attention, look for the following signs:
- Wet soil around the perimeter of your home
- Inward bowing
- Cracking at the corners or along the wall
- Walls that lean at the top or are sliding inward at the bottom
There are several ways to execute a professional bowed wall repair, but all focus on one crucial objective: restoring strength to the foundation. One method of repair uses steel bracing to shore up the block wall and prevent further warping. The second option is carbon fiber; though lower cost than steel and far easier to disguise, carbon fiber is only effective for sections of wall that are warped two inches or less.
