If the foundation wall is collapsing, a more sophisticated bracing system that goes under the footing might be required. Underpinning is a whole other issue. Depending on the situation, there also might be a wall anchoring system from the inside where you won’t have to do all the excavation work outside. These are all tools you likely don’t have.
Only a structural engineer will be able to see signs that you might be going from foundation problem to foundation failure.
Professional foundation repairs will also boost the value of your home. DIY is all well and good but there’s a reason why engineers went to school for these types of situations.
Foundation repair is a sophisticated, multi-step process, to do it right. By bringing in the professionals, you may in the end be saving yourself some money. If you do it yourself, and you don’t do it right, and a professional comes in and has to fix it, in the end you would have spent money needlessly.
The foundation is the most important part of your home. You risk doing further damage to the foundation by trying to do it yourself. You even risk injuring yourself, since it’s a big job.
