Bowing or buckling foundation walls can be a serious concern for your home’s structure. If your foundation walls are tilting or showing signs of inward movement, there is most likely an underlying foundation issue. Common signs of a foundation problem include:
- Stair-stepping cracks
- A leaning wall
- Walls being pushed inward

Foundation walls can bow for a variety of reasons. From poor construction to water pressure or tree roots, bowing walls need to be immediately addressed before they worsen.

Do I Need to Fix This?
If you have bowing walls, it’s important to have the situation inspected by a professional so they can determine the best solution. If a bowing wall goes untreated, it can lead to more costly repairs down the road.
Discovering your home has foundation problems can be stressful. Here at Premier Foundation Solutions, we will create a solution that will permanently fix your foundation.
When you have bowing walls, there are two solutions you can consider when determining which would best benefit your property. One option is repairing the wall by installing a Grip-Tite Anchor System, or the other option is replacing the wall completely.
The Grip-Tite Wall Anchor System secures and stabilizes deteriorating basement walls. The system consists of an interior wall plate, soil anchor, and connecting rod to stabilize foundation walls by offsetting the pressure put on the wall. This is a great alternative to completely rebuilding the wall.
When the bowing wall is too damaged to work with, the best solution is replacing it. For a wall replacement, we will excavate the soil around the wall, brace the above and surrounding structure, and remove the existing wall. We will then replace it with a robust wall to carry the above and surrounding structure load.
If you are experiencing bowing walls on your property, contact Premier Foundation Solutions before it’s too late!
