Basement Walls Cracked, Leaning, or Bowing
There are two types of basement walls. You have block foundation walls and then you have poured foundation walls. Typical signs that there is a problem with a block wall include, but are not limited to, horizontal cracking, stair-step cracking, pushing in at the bottom of the wall, or sliding in at the top of the wall. Some signs that there is an issue with your poured walls are leaning in at the top of the wall, diagonal cracking at corners, buckling of walls and ceiling panels. Regardless if your foundation is block or poured, all these signs are indicators of structural problems and must not be left untreated.
