Basement wall Problem

Another cause of the basement wall cracking inward may be the root of a tree. I HAD a very nice shade tree beside my deck but had to cut it down because the roots grew down the basement wall seeking water and cracked the blocks. Had to have a company come in and install 6" square metal posts about every 5' along the wall to keep it from caving into the basement. The post were ancored to the basement froor and the floor joist above. Hope this helps.
