Basement Wall Replacements in Northeast Ohio
Basement walls can seem like they last forever, and they essentially should, but sometimes there are elements that eventually take their toll on these walls causing them to crack, bow, and eventually cave in.
When Should I Replace My Basement Walls?
If you notice that your basement walls are cracked or bowing, then it is definitely time to seek out a professional contractor to take a look. If you let those cracks get too big or the bow pushes out too far, eventually the wall will cave in, but before that happens, you'll experience more flooding, which causes all sorts of damage to your basement and property.
The general rule of thumb is if you look at the bottom of the basement wall where it meets the floor of your basement, if that is shifted, then it is time to replace that wall.
What Damages Basement Walls?
The most common culprit of a cracked or bowed basement wall is going to be soil pressure. Other causes can be porches or concrete patios that settled against the walls.
