Bowing and Cracking Basement Wall Repair | Alliance Restoration | Illinois

Reinforcing a Failing Foundation

Are your basement walls cracking, buckling or beginning to bow? If your basement walls are bowing inward, that is a sign that the integrity of the building is in trouble. This can happen when hydrostatic pressure outside exceeds the strength of the wall. In order to stop this issue from getting worse, we may recommend carbon fiber reinforcement to stabilize the foundation wall.

Alliance Restoration offers free bowing wall and foundation repair consultations to homeowners and business owners in Arlington Heights, Barrington, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Mount Prospect, Mundelein, Vernon Hills, Lake Zurich, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire, Schaumburg, Lake in the Hills, Crystal Lake, Wonder Lake and more.

Thin As a Dime & Ten Times Stronger Than Steel

To see if you need a carbon fiber reinforcement system, a Project Manager will perform an inspection of your structure. The Project Manager will be looking for the cause of the bowing walls to find the best course of action. Our end goal in these situations is always to secure the foundation and prevent any further wall decay. If the wall isn't bowing more than 2", we often suggest The Reinforcer carbon fiber reinforcement system as the solution. The Reinforcer is a carbon fiber reinforcement strap that is 4" wide, .045" thick and 10X stronger than steel! We secure these carbon fiber straps to the wall using epoxy, thus forming a strong bond with the wall. Now as the pressure on the wall persists, The Reinforcer will provide an equal and opposite force from inside. The Reinforcer is easy to paint over and doesn't stick out like, making it easy to conceal and work around.

Our carbon fiber reinforcement services include a great warranty that you can trust. For more information on this service or to schedule your FREE inspection, please call 1-(815)-477-0029 or complete our quick estimate form.

Case Studies


Encapsulated Crawl Space

I called Alliance for a quote on encapsulation of my crawlspace. The price was extremely fair. Workers came out on time, removed old insulation, filled foundation cracks, and encapsulated the crawlspace. The job was done excellently and professionally by a great team. Very responsive, no sales gimmicks or up-selling. Just an honest company with hard workers doing a great job.

Foundation Cracks

There were 8 foundation cracks, some big and leaking and some developing. Alliance was able to complete the work soon after the estimate. I received good advice and the repairs have held.

Encapsulated crawl space

Very Professional. Crew that did the job were so hard working. They did an excellent job. They leveled the floor in the crawlspace, installed drain tile and installed a sump pit and pump. They also encapsulated the crawlspace with a heavy vapor barrier.

Eliminated foundation leaks

Alliance thoroughly checked the inside and outside of our home for cracks. They provided a plan and an estimate to eliminate the foundation leaks. They communicated with me a couple of times when scheduling the work. They showed up on time and the work was done professionally, neatly, and thoroughly. They took care not to track dirt into the house. We are especially happy with the new drain tile installed in our backyard. I would definitely recommend them to anyone having basement leaks.

Basement mold remediation

We hired Alliance Restoration to perform mold remediation on our basement. Once they removed the drywall the crew discovered cracks in the foundation walls that we were not aware of. Alliance was able to fix them too. We are happy to recommend Alliance Restoration.

Flooding from burst pipe

Exceptional service and would recommend Alliance Restoration in the future. Flooding occurred due to a pipe burst in the basement. Alliance immediately responded, upon arrival at the property the crew began working and even discovered some cracks in my foundation and were able to provide a very reasonable estimate to fix.

These guys are better than A++

These guys are better than A++. We had a small water leak in out finished basement and before we knew it we had mold growth. Alliance performed the remediation work and found and fixed two foundation cracks as well. I would definitely use Alliance again and recommend them to others.
