Bowing Wall Repair Service

We can fix your bowing walls

Concrete block basement walls are prone to bowing. Hydrostatic pressure (water pressure building up in the soil outside the foundation wall) is typically the source of the issue. If a bowing wall is left alone, it may collapse and cause very expensive damage to your home. SouthernDry offers a wide variety of repair methods for bowing, leaning or tilting walls, all backed by a trusted warranty. A free structural inspection by one of our expert contractors will help us determine which method is right for you based on the type and extent of the damage they find.

Wall Anchors:
If there is a more serious bow in the middle of the wall, wall anchors may be a good solution. Our contractors will dig away from the outside of the wall and install anchors that go into the earth at a 20-degree angle.  These anchors repair and prevent future movement by keeping the wall in place as soil swells and builds pressure on the basement wall.

Another anchor system uses wall anchors and rods. We insert a steel anchor rod through the wall to the outside soil. A steel anchor is then attached to the rod through a vertical hole in the ground. Finally, a steel wall plate secures the rod to the inside basement wall. This counteracts the hydrostatic pressure being pushed against the wall and fights the bow.

 Carbon Fiber:
If a wall is only bowing at the top, it may be a good candidate for carbon fiber reinforcements. At SouthernDry, we use The Reinforcer™ carbon fiber system because it is as thin as a dime, but 10 times stronger than steel! This means it is minimally invasive and will not protrude from your basement walls. Once properly installed, it will stop foundation wall movement and prevent any further wall damage.

I-beam Reinforcement:
The Force™ spring-loaded repair system is a patented I-beam system that is also used with great success to brace and stabilize bowing walls. It works by applying a thousand pounds of continuous pressure to the wall and automatically adjusts itself as the foundation wall corrects its position over time. No excavation is needed to repair the wall.

We can work together to decide which approach is best to stabilize and repair your bowing walls. SouthernDry offers free estimates to homeowners and businesses in Birmingham, Pell City, Hoover, Bessemer, Anniston, Jacksonville, Cullman, Gadsden, Albertville, Jasper, Talladega, Tuscaloosa, Oxford, Montgomery, and the surrounding areas.

Case Studies


Excellent customer service!

Excellent customer service! Excellent work! Excellent Choice! The owner came out and spoke with me about the project. He is very knowledgeable in regards to his line of work. I didn't feel as if he was selling me a product, but selling me what needed to be done to have the job done correctly. The best part of the experience was the work crew. I was out of town when the job was done, but the lead crew member maintained good communication with my wife and made her feel completely comfortable with the crew at our home. When I returned home, I texted the lead crew member with some questions, he responded immediately and stated that help was a phone call away if there were any concerns. A few last things that are worthy of mentioning. This is the first time in years that our home has not had random odors showing up! The air quality in the house is completely different! Our sagging floors are no longer sagging! Great choice with a local company! Great choice going with SouthernDry!

Reinforced Wall

SouthernDry came when promised, did their work efficiently and carefully cleaned up their mess. We needed to have a wall on our driveway reinforced and it took some extensive drilling. It was done quickly and the price was very reasonable.

Coming to the Rescue

It was a moment of serendipity when I met Russ from SouthernDry. At a place in my life where I was afraid to even call a foundation specialist, Russ came to the rescue. Him and his crew were extremely prompt at getting the job done and I highly recommend their services.

Very Professional

Entire team was very professional. They were excellent at communicating what needed to be done. They were always on time and let you know every step of the process. There was no high pressure sales techniques. They give you the quote and you can start on your timeline. Just call them when you are ready. I got quotes from the more widely advertised foundation repair companies as well and SouthernDry gives you the same product and same warranty at a great price. They worked hard to work around the landscaping. They also did an excellent job of cleaning up. I highly recommend them.

Everyone I spoke with from Southern Dry was top notch.

Everyone I spoke with from SouthernDry was top notch. I prefer doing business with people who are average, regular, down-home folks trying to make an honest living. If you're like me and want someone straight up to give you a reasonable quote on your repairs, call Calvin. They were fast, gave me a date to begin, started that morning early and did a fantastic job. Juan was the foreman on my project and if I had a question he had an answer for me. He was extremely nice and knowledgeable about what was being fixed and done. I was never left in the dark about anything. I had some pretty major foundation issues on one side of my newest house. The back sill plate was rotten and the floor was sagging from no support in the rear. Juan and the crew installed 6 piers, replaced the sill plate, cleaned the crawlspace completely, installed 5 jack supports, encapsulated it all and installed a dehumidifier and battery back up, and made me a 2 new doors in 3 days! So Calvin, Russ, John, Juan, and the other crew, thank you for a job well done. The house looks a million times better! I really appreciate it!

Reasonably Priced and Good Work

Reasonably priced and good work. I really appreciate that the company was willing to work with me until I was able to save the money to pay for my foundation repair. I only had to pay a deposit up front until the job was done. They honored my estimate for a couple of months before I was able to pay for the job to be completed.
