hello,
I was hoping someone would have some ideas on fixing a brick wall. We have a 3 or 4 foot wall on the front of ours house and part of it is cracked and leaning out. the wall looks like it may have falling down off its foundation a little, there is about a foot of cement in front of the bottom, it looks like it has fallen a little behind it like part of the foundation gave note: not the house foundation the form for the wall. we went to lowes and the guys idea was to use f26 construction glue and push the wall back - well we tried to push and it was not going to move. we would rather try to fix it, rather than replace it right now with the way the economy is.
anyone have any ideas
thank you
Brenda

Can you upload a picture to one of the free hosting services and then link to it here?

It sounds like you have brick veneer siding that was set on an inadequate footer. It may be possible to higher a foundation jacking company to jack it up and stabilize the footer but would probably be cheaper top tear off and redo or tear off and replace with siding.

Brick falling off

A picture would help tremendously... But if its real brick, and bowing out, a cheap, temporary fix is installing 3" wide vertical steel plates every 3-6' (depends how bad the wall is). It won't look very good but should hold it in place until your ready to rebuild the wall
