Basement Wall Structural Specialists
Have you noticed that your basement walls are beginning to look more curved rather than straight? Or is one area looking like it is leaning in closer than the others? If you have been noticing these things, you may be experiencing some structural problems with your home. If you notice that your basement walls are looking unstable, contact United Waterproofing as soon as possible as it can lead to further issues with your home’s foundation if you wait to act.
The Causes of a Bowed or Leaning Wall
Over time, due to age, water damage or other factors, basement walls will start to show signs of structural damage and require the needed repairs to correct the issue. One of the most common reasons for bowed or leaning walls comes from excessive lateral pressure from the soil outside your home or business, which is caused by poor drainage, damaged waterproofing and over-compaction of the soil. When a bowed or leaning wall is left unrepaired, it can cause extreme structural damage to your Connecticut property. The first step to correct the issue is to have a basement specialist inspect and offer a quality foundation repair.
Additional Foundation Problems Caused By Leaning or Bowed Walls
Bowing or leaning walls have pressure against them which can come from an uneven foundation or water damage in your basement. Leaning walls are often the sign of moisture damage or foundation issues, which can affect other portions of your building including:
- Cracked bricks
- Uneven floors
- Foundation floor cracks
- Crumbling concrete
- Door Sticking
- Ceiling cracks
Fixing Foundation & Structural Issues
When you are experiencing bowed or leaning walls, you may need to consider having your foundation repaired or stablizers put in to restructure the foundation walls. Normally if you are experiencing foundation issues, you may have additional issues to the exterior of your home including your chimney or external foundation.
