Bowing Basement Wall Repair Nashville
Bowing walls can be found in Nashville homes in need of foundation repair. They are often accompanied by cracks, especially horizontal ones, and possibly water damage. Many homeowners attempt to brace the wall themselves in order to keep the wall from bowing further or collapsing, but simply bracing a bowing wall – especially when done by an amateur – will not solve the underlying problem.
Bowing walls are caused by shifting and expanding soil around the foundation of your home. When your home has inadequate drainage, water tends to pool near your foundation and soak into the soil. Then, the soil expands, putting excess pressure on your walls and causing them to bow in the middle. Bowing walls in Nashville TN may also be caused by settling soil under your foundation, which causes the foundation itself to shift and crack.
