Bowing Wall Repair in Southern NH and Eastern MA

Few things are as unsettling as noticing that your basement walls are bowing. When your basement walls bow, it’s almost certain there is some level of damage to the foundation, which you never want in your home.

At Rescon Basement Solutions, we have a solution for when you’re facing this unfortunate situation. There are many things homeowners can take care of themselves. Foundation repair, however, requires the services of a professional that you can trust.

Causes Of Bowing Walls

The cause of a bowed wall isn’t limited to one thing. There could be an instability with your foundation or a water system problem. In many situations, the cause of a bowed wall is not evident to the homeowner. All they know is that their basement walls are bowing and causing problems with your doorways.

At first, your walls may only have cracks. However, as time progresses, you may notice that your wall is bowing in and that your doorways are becoming smaller. If you notice this, it is time to start thinking about the foundation repair process to ensure that your home stays safe for years to come.

Below are some of the most common reasons for bowing walls.

  • Your foundation is damaged or sinking
  • Increased hydrostatic pressure
  • More pressure in the soil that surrounds your property

Many of these issues are nearly impossible to identify for an untrained homeowner. You will notice effects without intervention, though. These can include flooding, more moisture, or large cracks in the walls.

Bowed Walls Can Damage Your Property

Having bowed walls can create a substantial amount of damage to your home. Unfortunately, the damage has already been done by the time you see the bowed walls. You’ll notice cracks, excess moisture, and many other issues. Your foundation should be able to support your home as intended. If you have bowed walls, your foundation is not supporting your home adequately, causing problems that will continue to grow unless they are fixed immediately.

Water In Basement Coves

When you have bowed walls, it can cause water to build up in the basement. This is called a “cave-in” and is not something you want to deal with. When water begins to collect in your basement cove, it has nowhere else to go. Darker cracks mean more water, and more water means more damage. It’s as simple as that.

Increased Humidity and Mold

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with your bowed walls. When there is water in the basement, it’s rarely a good thing. The moisture will get trapped and begin to grow mold. Mold is one of the most dangerous things you can have in your home because it can cause several health issues.

Mold can also be a breeding ground for pests such as spiders and ants. This is a health risk that no one should have to deal with, especially if you have younger children in the home. To help avoid these issues, you need to fix the bowing in your basement walls as soon as you notice something is wrong.

“I have been a Rescon customer for 3 years. From day one they have been great. From the initial call, to the friendly staff, to the clean and efficient work, everything is top motch. Typically, I have only needed them for yearly maintenance, but recently we had a major storm and my pump stopped running. I contacted them through their website, recieved a call shortly after, and an after-hours tech was dispatched. Their prompt follow up saved me from a flooded basement and the destruction of personal property. Short answer, these guys are great!”
