A Bowed Basement Wall in Harrod, Ohio

January 30, 2017
A homeowner from Harrod, Ohio, had construction experience and knew exactly what he wanted us to do with his basement.
The previous owner of the home added a basement onto the existing basement, though the footer from the existing basement was never properly covered. The side basement wall was severely bowed and the rear basement wall was slightly bowed.
We formed and poured a step footing to cover the existing footer, installed new sump pit and pump system, installed 8 steel beams on the rear basement wall, and replaced the side basement wall with an 8-inch thick concrete wall. This basement now has the integrity to last for another 100 years.
