BOWED WALL REPAIR
Buckling basement walls are a problem that can rapidly get very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To fix bowing 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 buckling any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly closed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR
If you have cracking in your foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of window or door frames, this is a sign that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Fremont area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. The problems are also caused by poor soil compaction during original construction of the home.
