old stone basement wall


You start by determining the amount of bulge (you need to measure this with a laser or a builders level). Then you attempt to determine the cause of the bulge. Could be settlement (check this with a builders level or a laser), could be soil pressure, could be the way the wall was built, could be impact. Post some pictures, and the results of your instrument survey.
