A foundation’s primary purpose, whether it is block, poured, or stone, is to support the compressive load of the building. However, these building components are generally weak when it comes to tensile strength and lateral forces.
Bowed basement and foundation walls can occur as a result of soil loads pushing against the walls. The problems can be compounded with depth, other factors and from lateral forces surpassing the foundation’s original load resistance. Over time, these factors can produce lateral bending. This condition also produces significant cracking. If left unattended, this problem will worsen with time, jeopardizing both the structural integrity and resale value of the property.

Fixing Bowed Basement and Foundation Walls
Bowed basement walls can be repaired using the latest carbon-fibre technology developed by Fortress Stabilization Systems. Using carbon-fiber Kevlar® sheet straps in combination with specifically designed epoxies, foundations can now be repaired and arrested with little to no obtrusiveness. The repaired bowed basement wall can then be painted, thereby creating an almost invisible repair, which will in turn increase the resale value of your home.
We are certified installers of Fortress Stabilization Systems.
