my basement is leaking and the walls are bowing. I want to hire someone to seal the walls until I can afford to get the foundation re-dug and then a new wall put in. Would a wall being installed on the inside against the bowing wall be a good idea? I read where one person is putting up a thicker wall to reinforce the bowing wall.
the cause of the water problem has been fixed, I'm just looking for a solution to the immediate problem at hand.
Any help/advice is appreciated.
also..will this be very expensive to seal and build a wall?
