Why Do Walls Bulge?

Bowing, leaning, or cracking in external walls can be the result of a few different symptoms, but it’s always due to a decrease in wall stability. You’ll find these symptoms in old as well as newer buildings. Here are some causes:

  • Excess moisture causing clay swell-bowing
  • Extreme lack of moisture causing clay shrinkage-settlement
  • Improper building practices
  • Lack of drainage systems around foundation
