Cracks in the walls of your home are not only unsightly, but are also an indicator of foundation problems that need addressing. More subtle yet equally important indicators of problems include bowed, leaning, or rotating walls. Because these problems can be tricky to spot, it is important to have your home inspected regularly so as to identify and eliminate potential concerns before they become bigger, costlier problems. If you notice cracks in your ceilings or other signs of foundation issues, contact the Rapid Foundation Repair team right away.
Bowing or leaning basement walls are commonly attributed to the varying moisture content of the soil surrounding the foundation. After heavy rains or melting snow, the soil becomes overly saturated, increasing the hydrostatic pressure underneath your foundation. If the pressure becomes too substantial, it will exert force on the foundation walls, causing them to bow or lean inward. This pressure can also cause the foundation to settle and lead to wall rotation. These problems require prompt attention, and if not repaired immediately, leaning or rotating basement walls can cause problems including but not limited to:
These issues should not be neglected or taken lightly. If you notice that your foundation walls are beginning to lean or rotate, contact a professional foundation repair contractor at once. We have years of foundation repair experience and superior service at an affordable rate to ensure that your repairs are executed quickly and effectively.
The best solution to correct bowing or leaning foundation walls is installing helical tiebacks, which are helical anchors screwed into the ground adjacent to the affected wall. A small hole is drilled on the inside of the wall and is later repaired and filled. Once the tiebacks are secured into the ground, they provide the opposing pressure necessary to straighten and enforce the bowing wall. This process is a simple and effective solution as is requires no exterior evacuation.
If your foundation walls are enduring leaning, bowing, or rotation, it is time to employ helical tieback installation services from Rapid Foundation Repair. Our quality services and affordable rates make us the best option for foundation repair fixes in Colorado!
