If you have noticed bowing or leaning walls in your Marion, IN home or business, this could be a sign of foundation failure. The professionals at MFS Basement & Foundation Repair has the solutions for your foundation repair needs including using helical tiebacks for bowing or leaning walls.
Bowing walls are often the result of hydrostatic pressure pushing against your foundation walls from outside of your home. This pressure buildup causes water to push against the walls with more force than they can withstand, causing them to bow. The expanding and contracting of the soil beneath your foundation can also cause your walls to bow or lean.
