Stabilizing a Bowed Basement Wall in Your Ithaca, NY Home
When you think of the materials that make up the basement walls in your Ithaca, NY home, you’re probably thinking they’re pretty strong. There isn’t much tougher than stone or concrete – so why are you dealing with a basement wall that’s bowing then? Sometimes, lateral forces, like soil loads pushing against the wall of your basement, are just too great for the walls to bear, and over time, this results in bowing. And, unfortunately, bowing leads to cracking – and cracks in your basement walls gives way to excess moisture seepage in your basement. Fortunately, you can count on Basement Waterproofing, Inc. to help you with the bowed basement wall repair you need.
