How to Fix a Bowing Basement Wall

Bill explains that basement walls are meant to handle the weight of the house above them, but they are not designed to withstand the enormous pressure exerted on them by the surrounding soil, which expands during the rainy season and contracts during the dry season. That soil movement causes the walls to bow inwards, and if that problem isn’t corrected soon, the wall might collapse.

DryZone LLC offers state-of-the-art wall anchor systems that act like braces. They counter the pressure from the soil, pushing the walls back and in most cases, restoring them to their original position overtime.

This method can be used in most cases of bowing wall and is not only proven and safe, but it is also less disruptive and more affordable than foundation wall replacement.
