Bowed Walls

Bowing Foundation Walls Signal Soil Pressure Issue!

If a wall is bowed/tilted more than 1″ (one inch), then the exterior surrounding your home should be excavated, and your foundation wall should be pushed back into place. After the professional foundation repair contractor has successfully repositioned the foundation wall(s), a non-expansive material is used as fill to prevent future pressure from expansive soil.

If one, or many, of your foundation walls are tilted/bowed less than 1″ (one inch), then reinforcement beams can simply be installed to prevent future movement. Reinforcement beams are used as braces keeping your walls from bowing any further than they already had.

When beams are installed to secure the foundation of your home, they will be attached to the floor joists and also anchored into the footings, in order to hold the wall in place. If we find that there is not bracing available to install beams, helical tiebacks may be used.
