how wall anchors work


Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly get very serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the foundation walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To repair bowed basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowed foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are very low.


If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly closed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
