Basement Walls

Is your basement wall is showing signs of failure?

Basement walls serve to retain the lateral pressure of soil. More simply, basement walls are used to hold back soil and substrate from moving due to the effects of gravity and erosion.

Basement walls are typically designed out of poured concrete or concrete block.

Telltale Signs:

  • Tilting Walls
  • Horizontal or stair-step cracking along the basement walls
  • Diagonal cracking at corners of poured concrete basement walls
  • Forward Movement of Wall or Wall Sections
  • Inward bowing or bulging along the walls
  • Walls sliding inwards on the bottom
  • Walls leaning in at the top
  • Wet, clay soils around the home coupled with damaged walls
