Stabilizing a Bowed Basement Wall in Your Syracuse, NY Home

House with a blue overlay and text for testimonials

Generally speaking, the materials that make up the basement walls in your Syracuse, NY home are quite strong. Stone and concrete are rugged materials - but that doesn't mean bowing can't occur. That's because lateral forces, like soil loads pushing against the wall of your basement, can be too great for the walls to bear, and over time, this results in bowing. An unfortunate side effect of bowing is cracking, which gives way to excess moisture seepage in your basement. Luckily, Basement Waterproofing, Inc. can help you with the bowed basement wall repair you need to keep your basement moisture-free.

Bowed basement walls in your Syracuse, NY home mean that you probably have cracks in those walls – and moisture concerns. Not only are the bowed, cracked walls unattractive to look at, they’re allowing wetness to seep in that leads to mold, mildew and bacteria and the bad odors that come from that growth. These factors make your basement a space in your home you’d probably rather not use on a regular basis, or even think about. Fortunately, you don’t have to put up with a wet, smelly basement any longer, because BWI can provide you with the solutions you need to make your basement usable once again.
