If you notice a bowed or cracked basement wall, you are probably in need of basement wall repair. Abowed basement wallis caused by too much outside pressure being pushed against it. When water is absorbed into the ground along the home’s foundation, the soil begins to expand. This expansion causes pressure along the basement wall and begins to push against it. As the soil dries, it then pulls away from the basement wall and creates weak areas along the wall. As a result, the wall cracks and push inward.
To prevent the cracked or bowed from getting worse, it is important to have it inspected by a foundation repair expert when the issue is noticed. Typically, Moisture Loc uses Carbon Fiber Straps for basement wall repair. Carbon Fiber Straps completely stabilize the wall so that no further movement will occur.
