We can provide solutions to restore your basement’s structure and protect your property.
When you look around the basement of your Des Moines, Iowa home, do the walls appear to stand up straight, or do you notice any signs of bowing or other damage? The sight of a bowed basement wall is concerning, but our team at AdvantaClean of Des Moines Central can provide solutions to restore the structure and protect your property. Bowed basement wall repair is one of the services we provide to our clients. It’s helpful to understand what causes a basement wall to bow. In most cases, this occurs as the result of excessive hydrostatic pressure, which often happens when the gutters or downspouts are insufficient or when the exterior grading on the property allows water to pool against the walls of the basement.
Before we begin performing bowed basement wall repair, we will assess the cause of the problem to find a solution. If we only focus on fixing the bowed wall but don’t address the root cause, the walls may start to bow again as soon as they experience heavy water pressure once again. After determining a resolution for the problem, we can provide you with wall stabilization options, which utilize epoxy and carbon fiber straps to eliminate the bowing and reinforce the walls. Long-term solutions may also include adding downspout extensions or exit lines to channel moisture away from the home.
Our bowed basement wall repair services are complete and effective. We want to help put your mind at ease that our trained and certified technicians have your best interests at heart and will deliver solutions that eliminate the problem for good.
