What’s Causing My Basement Walls To Buckle?
Most of the time water is the problem with basement wall issues in Big Spring. The hydrostatic pressure pushes on the walls from the outside, causing them to bow, buckle, and crack. However, there are several other potential causes that can affect your walls.
- Your foundational soil may contain a lot of organic material that is slowly breaking down and leaving behind voids.
- Your soil may be undergoing natural or harsher-than-normal expansion and contraction.
- The soil under your basement is eroding over time.
- Bowing or cracking concrete walls are just low-quality or were poured in a subpar way.
- Damaged walls are not well-constructed given their location and layout.
- The soil is being taken beyond its default loading capacity.
- Tree and shrubbery root systems may be out of control, pushing on the walls.
Regardless of the root cause of your problems, our professionals will identify it and find the correct solution for you.
Basement Stabilization Options
The two main basement stabilization options we offer in Big Spring are H-beams and carbon fiber sheets.
H-beams can fix many of your stabilization issues. They remove the pressure from where it should not be and help equalize it. This allows us to focus on any cracked or bowing walls and any flooring damage.
Carbon Fiber Sheeting
Carbon fiber sheeting is epoxied directly to your damaged walls. They are an excellent option because they take up less space and you have the option to paint over them. They offer more coverage than H-beams. Because of their design, they offer more wall support. Carbon fiber sheets can also be used in combination with H-beams for even stronger solutions.
