Wall Failure Warning Signs

If your basement wall is constructed from concrete blocks, you may see signs of wall failure that include:

Horizontal Cracking
These cracks typically start out small and increase in size over time as the soil on the other side continues to exert pressure on the wall.

Stair-Step Cracking
As with horizontal cracks, stair-step cracks will get worse over time. These differ, however, in that they typically start at the horizontal crack and propagate out to the corners.

Top of Wall Leaning In
When the top of a basement block wall leans in, it means it has become disconnected to your home’s framing. This is a serious problem that needs to be stabilized as soon as possible.

Bottom of Wall Pushing In
This happens when the bottom row of blocks remains braced by your basement’s concrete floor, but the rest of the wall pushes inward. This is also known as “shearing.”

Diagonal Cracking at the Corners
Because a poured concrete wall will tend to remain supported by adjacent walls, cracks typically extend from the upper corners diagonally down towards the middle, away from that adjacent support.

This is why it is so important to repair foundation issues as soon as they become evident. Not only do they affect other parts of the structure, but they often get worse and

What Causes Cracked & Bowed Walls?

Your home rests on a foundation, which rests on the ground beneath it. That means, your home’s foundation is only as stable as that ground. You might think that “solid” ground is just that – solid. But, the ground beneath your home is made up of many different layers of soil, each with its own properties, such as moisture content, density and material type (silt, clay, sand, gravel, etc.). Over time, these layers can shrink and consolidate, causing your home’s foundation to settle and crack. In fact, depending on your home’s exact geographic location, competent load-bearing soil or solid bedrock may be anywhere from a few inches to hundreds of feet below the surface. Clay soils have a tendency to absorb and retain water. When this happens, they increase in volume and weight. This expansion exerts additional pressure on your home’s foundation, which can cause it to fail inward and there’s no one better than The Basement Pros – get a free estimate.

I wanted to write a great review for the recent work done on my basement. Cody was great with the initial inspection, estimate, and keeping me up to date with the work process. Alexis and his team texted me daily before arriving on site, let me know when they were going to lunch, and sent me pictures at my request at the end. I would absolutely recommend the Basement Pros for their professionalism and cleanliness. I was expecting it to look like someone had opened up the floor and I was so pleased to see the lovely job that was done. Hopefully I will never need them again, but I know who to call if there is ever an issue. I can’t wait until it rains so we can test it all out!

Lance Ziolkowski from The Basement Pros came out give an estimate, the process was quick and to the point. He was personable, direct, and very knowledgeable! Great customer service!!
I had flooding in my basement and I was referred to Basement pros from a friend. When they got there, they were very professional and informed me of everything that need to be done. I have recommended a few others to use you for future needs .

They came to our house and while the leak was above the foundation they spent time to help me identify the problem.

Great people and quality work! We had bowing walls, water issues, and slab-issues. It was an expensive package (with french/trench drain around inner perimeter, I-beam braces for bowing wall, and poly-foam insertion into slab for stability), but -- from my own research -- it was reasonably priced, and -- more importantly -- excellently executed. Lance was super responsive and always happy to answer any questions via phone or email. Donnie, Cody, and Alexis were wonderful guys doing quality work. I had/have some hesitations about the need for the poly-foam for the slab, but I felt comfortable trusting Lance to make the right call. Would definitely work with them again! (Though that hopefully won't be needed anymore :))

Don and his crew did a WONDERFUL job, they were always checking in when arriving and leaving. We've had several rainfalls and the basement has not leaked once--Before the basement pros did work on our basement, the basement would always leak or flood when it would rain. Thank you for all your hard work!
