What is a Bowing Wall?

Bowing walls can often appear as horizontal or stair step cracks along your foundation walls, as well as walls that lean inwards. Bowed walls can be caused by expanding soil due to frost or hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure is inward force applied by underground water. If you notice any signs of bowing foundation walls, give us a call. Issues like these can greatly deplete the structural integrity of your home.

Don’t let bowing walls cause serious damage to your home or impact your property value. Our team at Mission Home Services uses wall repair products like GeoLock Wall Anchors to stabilize walls and prevent inward movement.

Problems with Wall Cracks

Wall cracks come in all shapes and sizes. They can be found near doors and windows or running the length of the wall. They can look like stair steps, be horizontal or vertical, small or large. Wall cracks can be caused by natural shrinkage in the concrete, foundation settlement or expansive soils. While a small one may not be cause for concern, larger cracks can be indicators of structural issues.

Because wall cracks can have a variety of causes, our team provides a wide variety of solutions. If walls cracks are due to settling foundations, our foundation piers will be able to lift the foundation back to its original position and prevent further settlement. Sagging crawl spaces can also cause wall cracks on living levels. Crawl space support jacks can provide the support to prevent sagging. No matter what the cause of your wall cracks, our team can provide you with the right solution.

Is Your Retaining Wall Collapsing?

Even though retaining walls are built to withstand the lateral pressure of the soil, they can still buckle or crack. Without repair, they’ll soon fail completely. To tell if your retaining wall is starting to fall, look for tilting at the top of the wall, cracks, or separation between the wall and the adjacent structure. Issues like poor construction or installation, bad drainage, or expanding soils can cause your retaining wall to deteriorate faster.

Mission Home Services uses both wall anchors and helical tiebacks to return your wall to its original position and prevent more movement. Both methods anchor the wall to more stable soil further away.

“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”

Gail B. | ★★★★★

“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
