Bowing walls are a common issue that are seen when there is hydrostatic pressure pushing on the foundation walls. This pressure is created whenever the soil expands when it absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, or when there is melting snow on the lawn. This can also occur due to a lack of moisture which causes the soil to compact, adding pressure to the wall structure.
Bowed Wall Repair
We offer bowed wall repair services to address your bowed basement wall problems, getting your home back to the way it was. It is important to get this problem taken care of when you first notice it. Failure to do so could result in the wall actually collapsing into your home. A bowed wall can cause a problem for the structural integrity of your entire home. To take care of the problem, we can install wall anchors and wall plates or carbon fiber straps if necessary.
Bowed Wall Solution: Wall Anchors
Bowed walls can be repaired with wall anchors coated with a galvanizing agent to prevent deterioration of the materials. These anchors are made from strong, durable materials. They can straighten most walls over time without the need for any kind of excavation.
Wall Anchors can be installed with minimal disturbance to your existing landscaping, driveway, sidewalks, porch, patio, etc. They have a low-profile wall plate that can easily be painted over or finished over, as well. This means that it will blend in well with the rest of your basement environment.
The wall anchor works by counteracting the pressure being applied on the wall from the hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding the home. This patented product can only be installed by qualified installers, such as those at Missouri Foundation Repair & Waterproofing.
