Signs of bowing foundation walls

The underlying cause of inward movement to your home’s foundation walls is expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure, but there may be other factors at play, such as foundation settlement. When the foundation settles, you may notice walls leaning in at the top or sliding inward at the bottom, diagonal cracks at the corners of poured concrete walls, horizontal or stair-step cracks along the walls, or inward bowing or bulging. And when you take a look at the soils surrounding the foundation on the outside, you may notice wet clay soil coupled with damaged walls, or even expansive clay soils. These are signs you need to call the Dallas foundation repair experts at Vesta.

What causes cracked and bowing walls in your home?

The type of soil around your home’s foundation along with the amount of moisture in the soil contribute to the pressure your soil places on the foundation walls. There are other factors as well, like the temperature conditions around your home and how far underground your home’s foundation is located. Frost can even exert pressure on your walls, as will large amounts of water pooling around the foundation due to gutters and downspouts that fail to properly direct the roof runoff away from the foundation. All of these factors can produce enough pressure to force the foundation walls to lean or collapse.
