BOWING WALLS?

Wall Anchors

The most common cause of a bowing or leaning foundation wall is excessive lateral pressure on the exterior. When the pressure becomes too much for the wall to handle, it starts to bow, crack, or even break. If this continues for a long period of time, the wall will begin to start sheering towards the bottom.

  • Expansive clay soils expand and contract as the moisture in the ground increases and decreases.

  • Hydrostatic pressure can occur, which is an accumulation of water in the soil surrounding the foundation wall, resulting in excess pressure against the wall.

  • Frost can lead to wall failure as the soil against the wall freezes and applies pressure.

Application of a wall anchor allows an even load to be spread up the entire height of the wall, stopping inward movement as well as the bottom shear of the wall. Epp Foundation Repair offers several wall anchor options to meet your needs.
