Why Are My Basement Walls Bowing And Cracked?

Like most foundation issues, bowed and cracked walls are caused by hydrostatic pressure—water interaction in the soil around your foundation. When water builds up around your foundation, and your home either has poor drainage or none at all - it causes soil or clay to expand or contract. The movement will affect any foundation, regardless of material.

At Dry Otter, we have the tools and experience to repair your damaged foundation. Since 2013, we have provided lasting foundation solutions for Charlotte homeowners, such as:

Carbon Fiber Wall Repair | Bowing And Cracked Walls In Charlotte, NC | Dry Otter Waterproofing
Carbon Fiber
Carbon fiber straps are a less invasive option than steel beams. They work on the same principle as beam supports - except carbon fiber straps (a material created by the US Military/NASA) are stronger than steel and weigh a fraction of a steel beam. Each strap is anchored at the top and bottom, and held to the wall with a water-resistant adhesive. Once secured, the straps can be painted over to match your foundation walls for a near-seamless finish.
