Tennessee and Kentucky have expansive soils. This soil is constantly expanding and contracting which pushes on foundation walls. Another added factor is hydrostatic pressure which is the weight of water in the soil that pushes on the wall. With both factors pushing on the foundation wall, it eventually cracks, leans, or bows the wall. There are numerous methods used to stabilize or push the wall back to its original position. Steel beams, wall anchors, and carbon fiber reinforcement are various methods used for repairing this problem. Each repair method is site specific.
