Charleston Bowing Walls

Keeping your home in safe repair is essential for protecting your property and ensuring it remains safe for your family. A critical component of this is maintaining its structural integrity. A house’s structure consists of windows, floors, doors, walls, and the foundation. Should problems occur in one (or more) of these areas, it’s important to contact a trusted Charleston and Lexington foundation and structural repair company right away. United Structural Systems is dedicated to helping homeowners protect their homes with quality foundation and structural repair support in Charleston and Lexington. Our team of experts can help keep your home structurally sound for many years to come.

One sign of serious underlying structural damage in your Charleston or Lexington home is bowing and buckling walls. When walls bow or buckle, it means there is a significant amount of pressure on the walls of your foundation. A common cause of this is the pressure exerted by the surrounding soil. If expansive soil surrounds your foundation, it can push against the foundation walls, resulting in structural damage. Hydrostatic pressure is one of the main causes of bowing foundation walls. When the soil surrounding your foundation becomes saturated, thousands of pounds more pressure is exerted against your foundation walls, which can cause them to bow inward and even allow water to seep inside through the walls. 

If your walls have begun bowing, United Structural Systems can help. Our highly experienced foundation and structural repair specialists in Charleston and Lexington will perform a thorough inspection to determine the cause of your bowing walls. We will then provide you with a customized repair recommendation for stabilizing your home, ensuring your family and your home remain safe and secure.

Bowing and buckling walls in your Charleston or Lexington home are a concerning sign of foundation trouble, but they are not the only warning sign. Additional symptoms of foundation trouble are:

  • A chimney that has begun tilting
  • Windows and doors that stick or are uneven
  • Sagging or creaking floors
  • Standing water around your foundation or in your crawl space

If you have bowing walls or any other warning signs of foundation issues in your home, contact United Structural Systems today for a free estimate. Our team of experienced Charleston and Lexington foundation and structural repair contractors can repair and stabilize your foundation, ensuring your home is safe for you and your family.

  • Bobby was fantastic. Needed a structural specialist to review cracks above garage when trying to sell our house. Bobby was very honest, professional and didn't try to sell us on repairs that weren't needed.

  • Bobby arrived as scheduled and conducted a thorough inspection of my basement. He did not try to oversell his products or services. In fact, he alerted me to more cost-effective and simpler solutions that did not require USS services at all.
