Common Foundation Problems:

BOWING WALLS


Bowed, cracked or leaning basement walls are a sign that something is going very wrong with the structural integrity of your property. This issue happens for several reasons:

    • Improper drainage
    • Inadequate or compromised foundation drain
    • Pressure from saturated soils in the backfill zone
    • Improperly compacted soil outside the foundation walls
    • Soil swells and exerts pressure that forces the foundation wall inward

In North and Central Georgia we have a mixed-humid climate and expansive soils. That combination can lead to foundation failures. During periods of normal to high rainfall, our soils tend to expand and exert pressure on the foundation. Conversely, when we have periods of dry weather, the soil tends to contract. This expansion and contraction also occurs with temperature changes. Your foundation is intended to handle these loads and support your home regardless of these changes.

Every home is unique and therefore, every foundation problem is specific to the structure it supports. In the past, homeowners had few choices for repairing foundation walls, except to excavate around the wall or build a new basement wall. Re-building basement or foundation walls is certainly an option but it is not only time-consuming, expensive and inconvenient, it does nothing to solve the underlying problem. The first step in your situation is to have your foundation evaluated by an expert and experienced foundation repair professional.
