Hydrostatic Pressure – Why Your Wall is Bowing
There are other causes of course, but one of the most common we’ve seen over the decades has to do with hydrostatic pressure – basically, water pressure trying to go from high-pressure areas to lower (for example – your basement). It may be coming from improper drainage, broken or damaged water pipes or systems due to settlement and the up and down motion of yearly freeze/thaw cycles, or perhaps poorly constructed concrete walls.
Regardless, we have the tools, technology, expertise, and professional teams and technicians to handle the situation. We’ve re-stabilized basements in buildings of all kinds. That said, let’s look at some of the common symptoms you may be seeing and what options we have at our disposal.
- You’re seeing severe cracks that look like stairs in the block wall.
- You may also be seeing more horizontal cracks in critical sections.
- Water, moisture, mold, and mildew are collecting in the basement through cracks.
- Basement doors are hard to close, there may even be uneven concrete flooring issues.
- You can visibly see the bowing, which means it’s rather severe and progressed.
This is why it’s critical to get a Childers Brothers technician on-site as soon as possible to perform our deep 27-point analysis and get down to brass tacks. Once causes are understood, we have a number of ways to stabilize the basement. In brief, let’s look at a few of them…
H-Beams: We may need to replace existing H-beams, add support, or repair them. H-beams are a dependable way to stabilize a basement wall, and we’ve installed thousands of them.
Carbon-Fiber Sheeting: Because the specialized carbon fiber sheeting we work with is stronger than the concrete it’s applied to, it adds serious strength and support. Two of the big upsides here are that they’re easy to paint over and take up almost no space.
Epoxy Crack Repair: We have a wide array of different epoxy resins we can use to repair concrete cracking and return strength to a damaged basement wall.
