Spring into Undoing Winter Damage

Spring into Undoing Winter Damage
 As snow and ice give way to flower buds, grass sprouts, and sunshine, it’s time to take a fresh look at the shape of your home.

Why Are My Basement Walls Bowing?

Why Are My Basement Walls Bowing?
Barring an unconventional, artistic approach to home design, walls are meant to be flat and level. When walls begin to round out--or “bow”--there’s likely something more problematic happening to the structure of your home. Bowed Basement Walls While any wall has the potential to bow, bowing most commonly occurs in basement walls , which in turn can weaken the entire structure of your home--not just the basement. When foundation walls appear to be bending or leaning, it is typically caused by hydrostatic pressure . In layman’s terms, that means the soil surrounding your basement foundation is holding excess water and creating a natural force on the exterior of your concrete. That force has the power to allow water to seep into cracks naturally formed in the concrete, as well as create enough pressure to cause walls to buckle, bulge, or bow. Bowed Basement Wall Repair Options If you want to stop...
