This seems to be a common problem in residential construction. A concrete block basement wall that is cracked horizontally (mid height) and bulging inward, obviously due to lateral earth pressure with inadequate or no wall reinforcement. What is the state-of-the art way of repairing this? I'm looking for a solution that spares the home buyer (or seller) from an extensive and costly wall reconstruction project. Any ideas or success stories would be appreciated.
