My wife and I have an offer in on a house. We haven't closed yet buy when I was looking at the basement. A couple sections (appear to be seperatations about every 3 or 4 feet show some bowing but vertically and not horizontally (think toilet paper roll on it's end). It seems a very small span to be caused by water pressure from the external soil. Could moving forms during the pour (poured concrete) cause this bowing in a few of the sections.
There is about three vertical cracks about the foundation noted too, but not right on the bow. Those appear to be < 1/8 (led to some surface effloresecene that will need to be addressed).
Any thoughts on the bowing?
