What does 'Bulging Wall' mean?

Bulging Wall

Occasionally the wall of a property can start to show a 'pregnant bump'. This is where pressure from above, such as a replacement roof that is too heavy, of movement in the building is starting to affect the stability of the wall. The problem is usually rectified by 'pinning' the unstable wall to a stronger part of the building with one or more steel rods. See the chapter What a Property Survey Really Meansfor more detail.
