Why Are My Basement Walls
Leaning And Bowing?

When it comes to repairing leaning & bowing walls, it's essential to understand their cause. At Kefficient, we're here to help. Below are some of the most common reasons why your walls are damaged:

Hydrostatic Pressure

The leading cause of a leaning & bowing wall is hydrostatic pressure. This is essentially the interaction of water and soil around your foundation. The more water builds up – the more pressure it puts on your foundation, causing damage.

Sinking & Settling Foundation

Another common cause for a leaning & bowing wall is a sinking and settling foundation. This is essentially the soil underneath or around your home, giving way over time, causing your foundation to shift and manifest itself in bowing and cracked walls.

Poor Drainage

Foundation issues don't happen overnight; it takes years of constant abuse for problems to appear. For many homes, poor drainage causes water to build up and manifest in foundation damage (hydrostatic pressure.)

Wood Rot

For older homes, wood rot can be a culprit for foundation damage. When combined with high humidity & moisture, wood tends to become infected with rot. This weakens the vital supports that frame your basement, causing leans and bows.

    We were beyond surprised when our 6 month old home developed mold in the crawl space. A friend had recommended Mark Keffer and KEFFICIENT. We could not have asked for a more professional team to walk us through the process. The work was completed in a timely manner…actually sooner than promised. The team performing the encapsulation of the crawl space was excellent and completed the work in less than a week. We would not hesitate to recommend KEFFICIENT for your crawl space issues.

    From our initial contact with Kefficient, to evaluation of our needs for repair with Brad, through the repair process with Mark, the service was exceptional. Communication was strong throughout the process, the installers were friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The finished project was exactly as promised, as well as billing. I strongly recommend their services.

    I am very satisfied with the work Kefficient recently did on my home. Brad came out and assessed my property. He was very kind and professional and explained everything to me. He followed up with me several times and provided the best customer service. Eddie and his crew completed the project with ease and proficiency. They were absolutely amazing and kind. They showed professionalism at all times and the project was completed on time and it looked great. I highly recommend the Kefficient team for your household mold restoration needs.

    I cannot say enough good about my experience with Kefficient. They did a wonderful job on my project starting with the first visit from Brad. He was very professional and informative about my crawl space problem and found mold that a previous company failed to find and notify me. Eddie’s crew did a super job and were very hard working. At the end of each day everything was cleaned up. Mark the owner was here almost every day with updates and to answer any questions or concerns I might have. This is a very honest and hard-working company that I fully trust for not cutting corners but doing an exceptional job. They cleaned up mold and encapsulation my crawl space including a sunk pump and a dehumidifier and two new crawl space doors.
