What Is A Bowed Wall?
A bowed wall is any foundation wall that has an inward or outward shift causing the foundation wall to lean or buckle.

What Causes A Bowed Wall in Your Foundation or Basement?
Unfortunately, foundation walls and basement walls can bow for a variety of reasons.

Bowed walls can occur due to the age of the overall structure, poor wall construction, or even water pressure. Bowed walls are commonly seen in older homes and structures due to many years of repetitive freeze and thaw weather cycles and soil settlement.

Another known issue can be trees and large growing tree roots which are known to put added pressure on the foundation and basement walls, or perhaps a bowed wall can be caused by poor construction.

When a house is built with subpar building materials, such as lack of rebar, improper water drainage systems, improper backfilling and negative fall on land grading, etc., it will cause the foundation to bow over time.

The most common cause of a bowing foundation wall is hydrostatic pressure, or water pressure. Water can build up in the soil outside of the house and add negative pressure to the foundation walls. When the ground around the foundation walls freezes and then thaws again, the foundation walls expands and contracts the water into the soil. This process results in the soil pushing against the foundation wall and causing great issue over time. This is why the most common form of a bowed foundation wall is just below the frost line.

Number One Bowed Wall Solution:
At Seagate Roofing and Foundation Services we highly recommend carbon fiber wall supports!

Carbon fiber wall supports are a great permanent solution for bowing foundation and basement walls. The patented system by Rhino Carbon Fiber Wall Supports are considered the strongest system on the market for professional solutions because it ties to the foundation base and the house framing.

The carbon fiber wall support is fastened to the sill plate with a galvanized bracket and secured to the foundation floor with a carbon fiber pin. Deterioration does not occur because the carbon fiber system is secured to the foundation wall which allows for an even distribution of outside foundation wall pressure.

Carbon fiber works on both foundation block and poured concrete foundation walls to repair not only bowing walls but also all types of foundation cracks.

Carbon fiber wall supports are installed from the inside of the basement so it is less less expensive and intrusive than other foundation repair options available. There is no digging up the landscaping around the home and the carbon fiber wall supports are a clean and fast installation process.

The final finish is smooth, flat, and nearly invisible when painted. The foundation repair is maintenance-free and can be covered without taking any square footage away from a basement remodel. The Rhino Carbon Fiber foundation system is also perfect to install on a bowing wall in your crawlspace. It's easy to install in tight locations and the footer is already exposed in a crawlspace which will ensure exact connecting to the footer of your home without any worry.
