Over time, homeowners may notice their foundation walls gradually becoming bowed, tilted, or leaning inwards. Bowed walls are a critical concern because the foundation walls cannot support the structure above ground. Once a foundation wall begins to curve, it can lead to structural damage, including a collapsed foundation wall.

At First Choice Waterproofing, we have the appropriate and practical techniques to repair a bowed wall before it is too late. We recommend contacting our professional team if there are noticeable signs of bowed foundation walls to help save your home and wallet. Bowed foundation walls can cause extensive structural damage and expensive repair costs. Contact our experts today to fix your bowed walls immediately.

Causes of Bowed Foundation Walls

Generally, hydrostatic pressure is the primary cause of foundation cracks and bowed foundation walls in basements. The excess water surrounding the foundation adds force to the soil, which causes the foundation to shift and settle. Although brick, block, and concrete foundation walls are sturdy, the pressure is too powerful and causes the walls to bow, tilt, or lean inwards.

Homeowners should do annual checks of their foundation walls to watch for visible cracks or curving walls.
