Bowing Foundation Walls
Pressure from the earth around the foundation can cause walls to bow inward
Bowing walls are sign of serious foundation problems
Basement walls will usually begin to bow before you can see any cracks. This bowing is sometimes difficult to see, but any bowing at all is an indication of a weakened structure. This can be from the external pressures on the foundation, and it's only a matter of time before this cracking shows on the inside of the basement. Brick walls are just as vulnerable to bowing and cracking as concrete and are also susceptible to crumbling mortar.
