Question
The concrete foundation has large cracks and water is leaking into the basement. The walls are also bowing. How do I repair the concrete foundation myself.

Thank you

Answer
David,
There are several methods that professionals use to repair bowed basement walls. Depending on the construction type whether concrete block, cast in place concrete or stone (rubble) type walls. The other question would be if the bowing wall is parallel or at a right angle to the floor joist system.
If you would take a picture or two and respond to these questions I can assist you with options.
