how wall anchors work


Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pushing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair bowed basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.


If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally poorly closed off and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having excess moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
