Boulder Wall Straightening
Your home’s foundation walls are designed to support the vertical pressure of the structure, but there are many things that can threaten that integrity. Most often, soil conditions cause horizontal inward pressure on foundation walls, causing bowing and buckling. When soils take on moisture, especially the clay-rich soils here in Colorado, they expand and push against your foundation. Other things like poorly graded soils, inadequate roof gutters, or poor drainage systems can cause walls to become unlevel.
When bowing walls are left unchecked, they will continue degrading until eventually the foundation walls give in. This creates a domino effect, resulting in your entire foundation falling apart and your home collapsing.
If you are dealing with bowing, tilting, or buckling foundation walls, you’ve come to the right place. Van Matre Construction is a leader for wall straightening services in Boulder.
When to Call a Contractor
Cracks in your masonry are one of the early warning signs of weakening foundation walls. You may notice parts of those walls bowing or buckling soon afterward. But don’t wait until then- call your local Boulder wall straightening and foundation repair team at Van Matre.
Our Wall Straightening Methods
Here at Van Matre Construction, we provide the most reliable and cost-effective solutions to bowing walls in your Boulder home, including wall anchors and carbon fiber wall repair. We can put them back in their intended position, and prevent future damage. We may suggest one of the following:
Wall Anchors- this system uses long threaded rods and plates, which connect your foundation walls to stable soils surrounding your home. The tension will gradually straighten a bowing or tilting wall.
Carbon Fiber Repair- to repair cracks in foundation walls, we use strips of carbon fiber that are glued to the walls with resin. This can seal the crack while absorbing some of the outside pressure on the walls.
