Why do I have bowed foundation walls?

There is never a good time for your home to have foundation problems or a bowing foundation wall. If your home’s foundation walls are starting to bow inward, it is a good idea to have an expert take a look and see if a bowing wall repair may be necessary. There are many causes for a bowing foundation wall, none of which get better with time. One source is pressure. Over time, pressure from outside soil can build and cause the walls to be pushed inward. Other problems include inadequate waterproofing, poor drainage or even poor foundation design.

What are foundation wall anchors and how do they work?

Foundation wall anchors are simple, heavy-duty plates that go on the inside of the basement wall. These plates are made to pull back on the wall and help stabilize it. These plates will bring your walls back to their original position, restoring your foundation’s integrity. Once the wall is back into position, we can begin the process of basement sealing and waterproofing. Making certain that the foundation’s strength and integrity are solid, is the key to a long-lasting home.
