Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle inward when the force against them exceeds their ability to withstand this pressure.
Failing foundation walls will crack and leak, and if you have a finished basement, they can lead to cracks in the finished walls. Bowing walls may eventually collapse and should be addressed right away.
We repair bowing walls from the outside with our Geo-Lock Foundation Wall Anchor System.
When outside access is not possible, we recommend our PowerBrace™ I-Beam System.
Our solutions will do more than simply stop inward movement -- they can also be used to straighten the walls back to their original position.

Foundation settlement occurs when the soils underneath a foundation are unable to support the weight of the structure that's resting on them.
A settling foundation will mean a great deal of damage to your home -- including cracked foundation walls, cracked drywall, doors and windows out of square, and tilting chimneys. As foundation damage goes unaddressed, it will become more difficult to repair.
Supportworks' line of foundation piers are a great option for repairing sinking structures of all types.
These sturdy, corrosion-resistant piers can stabilize and lift your foundation back to a stable position -- permanently!

Floors over crawl spaces begin to sink in three scenarios: When there are too few supports, when the supports begin to sink into the ground, and when the structural wood holding up your floor begins to rot and grow mold.
When crawl space structures experience settlement, the entire home above can begin to show damage. Drywall will crack, doors will stick and floors will become uneven. If the crawl space is damaged by mold, there may also be moldy, musty odors upstairs.
Rugged steel supports like Supportworks' SmartJack® Crawl Space Support System can quickly restore your structure. If your structure was sinking due to mold and rot, your crawl space should also be dehumidified and encapsulated to prevent further damage.
