how wall anchors work


Buckling foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pressing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem keeps getting worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are very low.


If you've got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly closed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. 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 series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
