Why do your foundation walls need to be straightened? Let’s investigate a couple of reasons:

Why are my foundation walls bowing?

Foundation walls begin to bow inwards when there is too much pressure on the outside of the wall. This pressure can be caused by an excessive amount of water pushing against your foundation, or expansive clay soils that are immersed with water and pushing against your foundation walls. Tree roots and poor drainage are other outside issues that can push against your foundation and cause it to bow. Watch out for horizontal cracks in your foundation walls, as those are a sure sign of structural damage.

How do you rectify bowed walls?

CNT Foundations regularly utilizes wall anchors to fix walls that are tilting or bowing. These anchors reach into the dirt away from your foundation and use that solid soil to gradually pull your foundation walls upright. Wall anchors are expertly installed by our team and will save you the additional cash and time that would be wasted if you replaced your entire foundation.
