Horizontal Cracking in Basement Wall
Horizontal cracking near the middle of the wall is one of the first symptoms you will notice in the case of a bowing wall. It'll start out small and increase in width over time as the soil outside continues to put pressure on the wall.
Horizontal and Stair-Step Cracking in Dixon, KY
Stair-step cracking at the corners of a bowing wall is another common sign. It typically means that the problem is getting worse. As the wall bows more severely in the middle, the corners are held up by adjacent walls, creating the stair-step cracking effect.
