Why You Need To Repair Your Bowing Foundation Walls

Although your foundation is made to carry the weight of your home, there are some situations that can prevent it from doing its job.

Your foundation can only handle so much stress and pressure before it starts breaking, and when that happens, the effects can be felt indoors. Besides the cracks forming underneath your property, foundation damage tilts chimneys, makes it impossible for doors and windows to open and close properly, and your floors become uneven/unsteady.

The most dangerous problem however, is the bowing of your basement walls because once the walls have lost their strength, it is easy for foreign debris to enter your home.

To determine that your foundation is in dire need of a fix, you first need to look for the following signs of damage:

  • Wall cracks (horizontal or stair-step)
  • Tiling
  • Bowing

Causes Of Bowing Walls

The most common cause of bowing and cracked foundation is expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure. This occurs when the clay soil surrounding your foundation takes in water and expands. This pushes against your foundation, and when the force exceeds the wall’s strength, it starts to crack and break. Once the clay soil dries, it pulls away from your foundation – creating weak areas.

Heavy rain, storms, and floods, are capable of repeating this process and eventually destroying the wall. Repairing this kind of disaster should only be left to the professionals, which we, at KC Waterproofing and Foundation Repair, are prepared to do. We are Kansas City’s go-to bowing wall repair experts and you can rely on us to get the job done.
