  • bowing basement walls

    My home was built in 1958 and the basement walls are bowing. I had a water system installed to take care of the water coming in the crack between the wall and the floor. I have asked a lot of questions and one person told me that the heavy stone on the exterior, is what is causing it to bow since at that time they did not add rods to the inside of the block wall for strength. Those peices of stone are heavy as teher are a few left over. The house has sunk about I/2 inch on front and back.
    any ideas about the best way to fix it?
