A homeowner in Upper Sandusky, OH, noticed his basement walls were cracking and bowing inward.
These common signs of wall failure are most likely caused by hydrostatic pressure. As exterior soil expands, it exerts pressure on the wall. As this continues over time, the problems will only get worse. It is important to seek professional assistance as soon as these signs are visible.
The homeowner contacted Ohio Basement Authority with the goal of permanently stabilizing the problematic walls. After repairing the cracks, one of our expert crews installed a total of 16 Carbon Fiber wall supports on the foundation walls. These sturdy supports will permanently reinforce the walls and prevent further cracking or bowing. It is also easy to conceal these supports with paint or drywall.
The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing the foundation walls will be structurally stable for many years to come.
