What Causes Tilting Basement Or Foundation Walls?

Basement walls that are showing signs of bowing, buckling, and tilting can get worse over time, and they should be addressed before finishing the basement.

Your foundation repair expert can talk with you about options to quickly and effectively restore your foundation wall to its original, straight alignment.

The soil around your foundation house can place a great deal of pressure on your basement walls.

This pressure varies based on the types of soil that are present, how much moisture is in the soil, and how far underground your foundation extends.

Other factors, such as hydrostatic pressure, expansive clay soils, frost, improper gutter systems, and poorly graded soils can also contribute to foundation issues.

While there's constant pressure pushing in on the foundation, there's no equalizing pressure pushing out! If the outside pressure is greater than the strength of your walls, they will begin to fail.

Cracks in the masonry are usually the first sign of wall failure. Then sections of the wall can actually start to buckle, bow, and tilt inwards. Left unchecked, this damage will worsen and can even result in walls that totally collapse.

The good news is that the foundation damage mentioned above can be repaired using proven, long-lasting techniques that are much more affordable than replacing the foundation.

In some cases, homeowners may want bowing and/or tilting walls to be straightened right away as opposed to gradually, so that all or part of the basement can be finished -- or perhaps they may want to completely correct foundation wall problems so that the house can be put on the market.

Regardless of the reason, basement walls can be excavated and straightened immediately rather than waiting to tighten the walls periodically.
