how wall anchors work


Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can quickly get very serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pressing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem 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. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.


If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly sealed and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
