Bowed Wall

I Have A Garage Wall That Is Bowed In 3 inches At The Bottom For About 8 feet, Looks Like Slab Forms Were Not Straight. How Can I Sraighten This Wall?

Re: Bowed Wall

I doubt that you will be moving that wall very much. Walls on top of slabs are usually anchored with anchor bolts that are sunk in wet concrete and run up through the floor plate. It might be anchored with case hard nails and that would still be pretty hard to move.

You could always re-frame that wall with 2x2's and sheetrock. A little bit of work but I don't know what you're trying to accomplish by getting the wall straight. Whatever it is, moving the wall will be more work than I'd think about doing.

Good Luck.
