More than likely, if you have a bowing wall it is because of hydrostatic pressure. When the ground outside becomes saturated with water, it starts pushing (creating pressure) against the foundation of your home and eventually will reach your basement. Over time this can cause bowing and eventually cracks in the walls.

Carbon Fiber Straps:
Carbon fiber straps can be a good solution when the wall is bowing less than 2 inches. This solution is the least invasive and least expensive. Epoxy is used to secure and fuse these straps to the wall. The good news is that no digging outside is required because this can all be done inside the basement.
Steel wall anchors may be necessary if your walls are bowing more than 2 inches. This solution requires work both inside and outside of your basement. Wall anchors are not always an option depending on the location of your home but are the best solution to restore your home’s stability long-term.
This solution is definitely the most expensive option and is necessary when your property does not allow for wall anchors or carbon fiber straps because your wall is bowing more than 2 inches. Using helical tiebacks will absolutely restore the structure as steel shafts are drilled through the earth surrounding your home and onto the foundation wall.
