Wall reinforcement is a form of foundation repair, which is often recommended for older buildings.
In years gone by, it was common to build foundations using materials such as unreinforced concrete or cinder block. In older buildings, it’s relatively common to see walls bowing and leaning in due to the pressure exerted on the foundation walls by soil and water. If the walls become compromised, it may not always be possible to stabilize and restore the integrity of the structure using wall anchors. In this case, wall reinforcement may be recommended.
