What Causes Cracked and Bowing Foundation Walls

The soil and clay surrounding your home put a tremendous amount of pressure on the foundation walls. Precipitation and moisture cause that soil and clay to swell and expand, putting excess pressure on the foundation walls of your home. This pressure, along with several factors, cause damage to the foundation walls.

Some of the other factors include:

  • The type of soil around the foundation
  • The amount of moisture in the soil
  • How deep underground the foundation is
  • The temperature

    The foundation walls of your home are the only barrier keeping all that soil outside. Hydrostatic pressure, expansive soil, and frost can exert enough force and pressure on your walls to cause them to bow, crack, lean, and even completely collapse. Gutters, downspouts, and roof runoff not directed away from the foundation can cause the soil to collect excess water and become heavy as it swells.

    Signs of Bowing Foundation Walls

    Expansive soil and hydrostatic pressure are the primary causes of your foundation walls’ inward bowing and buckling. However, structural damage to the foundation wall may be caused by other factors, including a change or shift in the foundation settlement.

    Some of the signs to look for include:

    • Horizontal or stair-step cracking along the foundation walls
    • Diagonal cracking at corners of poured concrete foundation walls
    • Inward bowing or bulging
    • Walls sliding inwards toward the bottom
    • Walls leaning inward at the top
    • Expansive clay soil around the structure

    How Can We Fix It?

    Our team at Alpha Foundations will install our SettleStop™ Wall Anchors along the bowing walls. The clamping pressure of this system allows us to stabilize and restore your foundation wall.

    We’ll place soil anchors attached to steel rods in the ground around your home. The steel rods can extend through the foundation wall and distribute clamping pressure. Once we tighten the nuts on the threaded ends of the rods, the wall will be stabilized, giving you a permanent solution to your foundation problem.
