Boulder Bowing Wall Repair
Have you noticed the basement walls in your Boulder home buckling or leaning inward? Don’t ignore this red flag, and end up with total foundation collapse! Call your local leaders for bowing basement wall repair in Boulder- Van Matre Construction.
Your foundation walls are always under pressure from the outside, often due to the soil conditions. When soils take on water, they expand and exert inward pressure on the walls to varying degrees based on things like soil type, moisture levels, foundation depth, ambient temperatures, and more. The wetter and heavier the soil, generally speaking, the more pressure on your foundation. And over time this pressure can cause bowing or cracking in your foundation, eventually leading to irreversible damage. It’s important that you work with a team that specializes in Boulder bowing basement wall repair.
The Warning Signs
You may not be able to see the pressure force on your foundation walls, but there are signs you should watch for. Any of these may indicate a need for foundation repair:
Bowing or bulging walls
Walls leaning in at the top
Cracks on stairs along foundation
Horizontal cracks on foundation walls
Wet, clay soil surrounding home
Any type of wall damage
When Repairs are Needed
It’s vital that you not ignore the warning signs of foundation wall damage, no matter the type of foundation you have. However, repairs are most urgent in homes with concrete hollow block (CHB) foundations, as these tend to give in more easily at the mortar joints. Poured concrete foundations often show horizontal cracks under pressure, and need to be addressed as well.
When you see cracks, tilting, buckling or leaning in your Boulder home’s basement walls, call us at Van Matre Construction right away. We can recommend the best solutions for homeowners in Boulder for bowing basement wall repairs.
