What You Need to Know About Bowing Walls in Your Basement

The constant pressure on your foundation walls from expansive clay soil and frost can all exert enough force to cause walls to lean or even collapse. In addition, if roof runoff is not directed away from your foundation, the soil around the foundation will become heavier and more expansive. As the soil is saturated with water, it will exert more pressure on your walls. When this force exceeds the wall’s ability to resist it, the wall begins to fail in different ways. Cracking, bowing, and tilting are the most common symptoms of foundation wall failure.

As basement walls lean and crack, it makes the house less stable and can allow water to seep into the basement or crawl space.

Signs of Bowing Foundation Walls

Over time, basement bowing walls can lead to serious damage to the home and impact property value.

Warning signs of bowing walls include:

  • Horizontal or stair-step cracking along the foundation walls

  • Diagonal cracking at corners of poured concrete foundation walls
  • Inward bowing or bulging along the walls
  • Walls sliding inwards on the bottom
  • Walls leaning in at the top
