Bowing, Buckling, and Inward Movement - Oh My!!

Monday, October 31st, 2016 by Maggie Moen


When foundation walls are bowing, buckling, or moving inward it can be quite frightening! Your foundation walls can move inward for any of the following reasons, hydrostatic pressure, expansive clay soil, or frost can all exert enough pressure to cause walls to lean or even collapse.

So how do we fix it? Innovative Basement Authority has developed products that will stabilize your bowing wall(s) and leave you with peace of mind that your home and family are safe for many years to come.

A crew will come out to your home and install Wall Anchors along the bowing walls and use the system’s clamping pressure to stabilize and restore the wall.

Foundation wall anchors can repair many bowing wall problems. Soil anchors are placed in the ground outside.

Steel rods attached to soil anchors extend through the foundation wall and wall plates. Wall plates distribute clamping pressure. Tightening nuts on the threaded ends of the rods stabilizes the wall for a permanent solution.
