Bowed Basement Walls

Leaning, Bowing & Cracked Walls

Concrete basement or crawlspace walls become stressed when there is an inconsistent amount of pressure against them. The structural integrity of your foundation wall is at risk during times of both extreme drought and heavy rainfall.

When extreme drought occurs, the soil surrounding and supporting your foundation dries and shrinks up, leaving large gaps between the soil and your foundation. In times of heavy rainfall, the surrounding soil swells and exerts a tremendous amount of hydrostatic pressure (soil expansion) against the walls.

The pressure (or lack of support) often becomes too much for the walls and causes them to bow or lean. Efforts to stabilize or reposition bowing walls should be taken as soon as possible. When cracks appear in these walls, the structural integrity is compromised.
