Bowing Walls

One of the first signs of foundation weakening is the formation of bowing walls. Before any wall cracks even begin to appear, basement walls usually start to bow inward as the structure begins to feel the pressure of outside forces pushing against it. Once this happens, it’s best to consult with a professional foundation contractor to see what can be done to fix it.

Identifying the Signs of Bowing Walls

It is sometimes difficult to see if your basement wall has begun to bow inwards or if your foundation has started to sink. It is important to learn the signs of bowing walls since this can be a solid indicator of more serious and irreparable problems.

Cracks forming along the top and the bottom of the basement wall can be a sign of bowing walls, especially if the cracks along the top are wider than that on the bottom. Foundation weakening can also be identified when the exterior brickwork or caulking also begin to crack. Similarly, any outer chimneys and porches will also be affected once they begin leaning at an angle.

When inspecting for bowing walls, you can also check to see if the floors no longer seem level. Also, when cabinets, windows and doors no longer shut properly, this can be a sign that the earth may have shifted and that they are no longer properly aligned. However, the worst sign of bowing walls is when the foundation walls start to bulge in response to flooding since there is a distinct possibility of building collapse.
