Bowing basement walls are a common problem in residential foundation repair. In the Atlanta area, basements were generally built from hollow 8″ or 12″ CMU block.
In the case of a block wall, the first signs will often be a horizontal crack that shows up in to top 1/2 to top 1/3 of the wall and may stair step as you get close to either end of the wall. This horizontal crack is most often due to hydrostatic water pressure building up on the exterior and “pushing” this wall in. Typically block walls are a primary candidate to bow and have a horizontal crack like the one seen in the picture at the top of the page.
