So. I was in the basement yesterday and noticed something that hadnt been there last time. The northern wall had a very difinitive bow in it. I had a inspector check the place out when I bought it about a year ago and neither of us saw any obvious cracks before we bought it and I dont remember seeing anything last time I was down there. From what I understand a bow like this is supposed to happen over time. Not something that happens all at once over the course of a few months. Has anyone else seen or heard of this happening so fast? Also. I'm a pretty handy gal. And fixing it shouldnt be overly difficult. From reading into it basement specialists will typically excavate the exterior wall and set up a special type of high strength channel iron then fix a (or several) I-beam to the floor joist and footer then over time crank it back into position. And then set anchors. I've found the anchors online for a hundred or so bucks a piece. But cant seem to find the jacks or channel iron anywhere. Lots of links to businesses that will charge me anywhere from two thousand to fifteen thousand to do the job. But there is precious little information on where to acquire the tools to do it myself. Any help would be appreciated.
