Bowed Foundation Walls
Bowed foundation walls are a common structural problem seen all over the Brackenridge area. It is caused by excess hydrostatic pressure on the soil surrounding the home. Whenever a home is built in an area with clay-rich soil, the soil will quickly absorb the moisture from rainfall causing the soil to swell. This puts a large amount of force on your basement walls and can be the cause of bowed or leaning basement walls. Our team has a patented basement system designed to pull your walls back to their proper level and strengthen your foundation.
