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 PFS 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.

Helical tiebacks are designed to stabilize and strengthen bowing or leaning basement walls. They are installed from the inside of the basement wall through a small hole that is drilled and then sealed after installation. With exterior excavation, the wall can be immediately pulled back to its original level. Some of the other applications that helical tiebacks are used for besides basement walls are:helical tiebacks
