CRACKING / BOWING BASEMENT WALLS
Inward & Outward Bowing and Cracks
Basement walls bowing inward or outward may be the result of soil pressure. Especially after heavy rains, waterlogged soil gets heavy and can put pressure on your basement walls. Similarly, cold Wisconsin winters can freeze the moisture in the ground, making it expand against your walls.
Bowing walls can crack (if they haven’t already) and can lead to serious leaks and water damage. Bugs may enter through the cracks. Cracking and bowing walls may even lead to concerns about crumbling, instability or structural integrity.
