Bowing Wall Repair

A bowing or leaning wall is a clear sign of foundation trouble needing repair. When your foundation experiences pressure from outside, this results in bowed walls. There are a variety of methods to correct this issue depending on the circumstances. The sooner a repair is completed the less likely you are to have further damage to your foundation.

Every problem starts with an inspection. Give our foundation repair team a call at (207) 489-6519, so we can take a look at your home’s foundation. We proudly serve Lyman, Portland, Southern Maine, and Northern New Hampshire.

    TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS FOR STABILIZING BOWING WALLS

    SOIL EXPANSION

    Soil expansion applies pressure on your outer walls. This problem is caused by soil shifting, and this shifting can create leaning, bowing, and buckling walls. Earth anchors and force are two common ways to address a foundation wall that is moving inward.
