What Causes Walls to Bow?
As the soils in the ground shift from changing weather conditions, they can put an immense amount of pressure on your foundation walls. Soils can expand as they become wet and push against your walls, causing them to bow or buckle. As a result, you may notice your walls start to bow, bulge, or even crack in certain spots.
Bowed Wall Repair Solutions
Depending on the severity of your bowing walls, we offer a variety of different solutions that will stabilize your walls and potentially straighten them back to their original position. All of our bowed wall repair products are manufactured Supportworks, one of the top manufacturers in the industry.
GeoLock™ Anchors are heavy-duty anchors made of galvanized steel that are driven deep into the soil behind your bowing wall. Once they reach competent soils to support the weight of your wall, they are connected to steel rods to hold your wall in place.
The PowerBrace™ system includes zinc-plated steel beams that are installed against your bowing walls to provide a stable base to support the failing wall. This system can be customized to fit the height of your walls to ensure they are properly supported.
The CarbonArmor® system is typically less invasive compared to the other wall repair solutions. It includes reinforced carbon fiber polymers that are installed into your bowing wall. Its unique design allows it to be durable enough to support the wall and flexible enough to handle any future movement from the earth.
Helical anchors are mechanically screwed deep into the soil behind the bowing wall. Once load-bearing soil is reached, the anchor is connected to wall plates to secure the wall into place to prevent any future bowing or tilting.
