Bowed walls, cracked walls, or leaning basement walls are a sign that something is going very wrong with the structural integrity of your property. Hydro-static pressure from too much water building up against the walls or the soil that is around your property swells and exerts pressure that forces the foundation walls inward.
Our Grip-Tite Wall Anchoring System can fix the cracking or bowing caused by hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil, or other related problems. Don’t risk the investment in your home by failing to address these issues! Consultation and estimates are always free of charge.
There are a few different methods our team of specialists can use to bowed walls repair or cracking walls repair. After evaluating the condition of your structure they will determine what will serve as the most effective solution.
Bowed walls are often caused by moisture intrusion, so the repair process might include exterior waterproofing. The waterproofing process includes excavating the soil away from the sides of the home, which can sometimes correct the formation of the walls. The walls can then be core-filled to help prevent any future movement.
In the event that the walls are not bowing too badly, core-filling the walls exclusively might stop the bowing from getting any worse.
In more problematic cases, both carbon fiber strapping or steel bracing can be used to help support the concrete or block walls of your basement or crawl space that have become cracked or bowed.
Carbon Fiber Wall Support Systems are both durable and minimally invasive.
