Mobile: Wall Straightening

Kansas City Basement Walls

Wall Straightening

Foundation walls can move “laterally” which means to lean or bow during the seasonal changes here in the Midwest. Walls typically move inward during times when the soil is saturated from rain and then move back out during the dry season. In many cases the walls will not move out or “recover” as much as they moved in and you end up with a lean or even a bow in your wall.

General rules for repairing wall movement are based on the amount of movement, type of movement, and the way the structure is built.

  • Less than 1″: The wall can recover on its own, Do preventative maintenance like dirt, gutter drains, and concrete leveling.
  • More than 1″: The wall will no longer recover on its own, brace the wall and re bond all wall cracks.
  • More than 3″: Catastrophic failure of wall, excavate wall and straighten back to plumb or within the 1″ tolerance.
