Leaning & TIpping Walls
Licensed and insured foundation professionals in northeast Ohio
Bowing foundation repair in Canton, Ohio
Foundation walls are under constant pressure from the soil that directly surrounds the structure. If pressure is intensified for any reason, it can lead to bowing, buckling, leaning, and bulging in concrete, block, brick and stone basements.
If you recognize even minimal bowing in a foundation wall, the tipping process likely started months ago – if not longer. In the case of leaning, the more proactive you are in seeking immediate professional repair assistance, the less likely you will be met with significant damage and costly repairs that are necessary to stabilize the wall.

Warrantied basement solutions
If a wall is bowing, stabilization is required to halt inward or outward movement caused by soil pressure or intruding tree roots. Depending on the cause and complexity of the problem, we use the following methods to restore basement walls for many years to come:
- Steel braces
- Foundation anchors
- Carbon fiber
- Helical piers
- Steel push piers
- Steel beam reinforcement

The good news is that foundation walls rarely have to be completely rebuilt when they bow or crack. Our alternative methods generally deliver long-lasting stabilization.
Signs of an unstable foundation
A tilting wall can be difficult to diagnose if obvious leaning or tipping isn’t present. We suggest regularly monitoring your basement walls and floors – especially in older homes. When doing so, pay attention to subtle signs of faulty foundations.
The following symptoms may signify a compromised foundation:
- Jammed and sticking windows and doors
- Uneven, bouncy or sagging upper-level floors
- Cracking drywall – especially above doors.
- Tilting or tipping chimney
- Cracks in exterior brickwork or caulk
You can help prevent foundation issues by limiting wet and expansive soils. Do this by making sure your downspouts and gutters are cleared and working properly.
