Foundation Bracing


Hey guys my cinder block basement wall is bowing inwards with a large horizontal crack I've had two contractors look at one said to brace it with steal beams the other said that is a temporary fix and the only way to deal with the problem is to dig it out and rebuild the wall does anyone here have an opinion on the matter?
