I recently purchased my home and noticed the basement walls are starting to bow in. What are my options to prevent this from moving inward any further?

I too had the exact same issues with my home. Since Ive been in the construction industry for over 20 years I knew I wanted to use carbon fiber instead of steel beams. After researching I decided to go with the Rhino Carbon Fiber System because it attaches at the top and bottom of the foundation, tying everything together. I installed the system myself 5 years ago and Ive had absolutely no issues since. Another good thing about Rhino is you can order it and install it yourself or have a contractor install it. Hope this helps!

If the problem lies in foundation cracks, then the problem can often be fixed by chipping out the crack and applying masonry patch, epoxy or other sealants.
