BOWED WALL REPAIR
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls 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 not be able to support the building much more. If the problem keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To fix bowing foundation walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR

Foundation problems are fairly common in the Kearney area due to the moisture levels of the soil go up and down throughout the year.
