Foundation Repair Atlanta Repairing Buckled and Tilting Basement Walls
Many homes in and around the Metro Atlanta area are built on block basement foundations. Some basement foundations in the Atlanta area are made of stone foundations, which are also vulnerable to buckling and tilting from soil pressure. Today’s modern day poured concrete wall foundations are also vulnerable to damage from soil pressure causing them to tip inward. Therefore, The Waterproof Group has made foundation repair such a large part of our waterproofing business.
How Basement Walls Buckle and Tilt
Soil pressure is the leading cause to buckled and tilting basement walls. Poor drainage and water runoff are severe factors in the soil pressure against basement walls. Homes located at the bottom of hills, end of cul-de-sac’s or that have their yard / driveway sloping toward their home tend to have the most foundation repair needs. Many homes on flat sites also have issues due to a negative grade funneling water toward the foundation. Furthermore, homes with no roof gutters also have an excessive amount of foundation repair needs.
