What Causes Basement Walls to Bow in Maryland?
Bowing basement walls are a common problem that can cause significant structural damage to a home or building. These walls bow inwards due to excessive pressure from hydrostatic forces, which is caused by water pushing against the wall. If the hydrostatic pressure exceeds the strength of the wall, it will start to bow inwards. Other potential causes of bowing basement walls include soil erosion, expansive soils, and construction problems. If not addressed, bowing basement walls can lead to major foundation damage and other serious structural issues.
Fortunately, Maryland Mold & Waterproofing offers many repair options including steel reinforcements, carbon fiber wraps, epoxy injections, and more.
