Basement Wall Stabilization
Basement walls are the very foundation of your house. There are many reasons why basement walls bow and require wall stabilization.
The most important factor in the stability of a house foundation is the soil and water around it. For example, many soils contain clay, which can contract and expand based on the amount of moisture in it. When clay is saturated with water it expands and can create additional pressure on a basement wall.
Common Causes of Bowing Basement Walls:
- Type of surrounding soil
- Expansion/contraction of surrounding soil
- Poor drainage around foundation
Poor drainage around the perimeter of your house can add too much water in the earth, weakening the soil and causing your house to shift. The changes in moisture can have a major effect on your basement walls. As moisture builds up in the soil it becomes heavier and therefore puts extra pressure on the walls.
These forces push the soil against your basement's walls and over time cause them to bow inward. Vertical and horizontal cracks are indicative of a structural problem.
Constant pressure from moist soil erodes mortar and allows blocks to slowly displace, resulting in cracked foundations and bulging or bowed basement walls that allow moisture to find its way in.
