Bowed Basement Walls
Bowed walls are usually the easiest to identify of all basement problems. It occurs most frequently in homes with cinder block or stone foundations but is just as likely to occur in homes with a poured concrete foundation. Be sure to inspect your basement walls every year for signs of bowing. If you notice that your walls are leaning into your home contact our experts. We can help you repair and strengthen your basement walls so that bowing cannot occur again. In addition to this bowed basement walls can often cause wall cracks and foundation leaks. Keep an eye out for water and cracks in your basement.
Foundation Wall Cracks
The last sign of foundation damage on your home is cracked basement walls. This can occur on both block and poured foundations. One of the most obvious signs of wall cracks is, well, a crack in your foundation. Wall cracks are typically repaired with epoxy injection, but if the crack is large and at risk of spreading our team will also use a carbon fiber patch to repair the crack. Be sure to keep an eye out for water leaks in your basement near cracks.
Street Creep Repair
Our team at Mid America Piering also has a lot of customers approach us with concrete issues. However, most are not aware that their issue is actually caused by street creep. Street creep is often referred to as concrete creep and is the result of the movement and expansion of concrete because of thermal fluctuations throughout the year. Keep an eye on the concrete foundation around your home for signs of street creep such as bowed walls, wall cracks, and expansion joint issues. If you have questions about street creep contact our team.
