how wall anchors work


Bowing basement walls are a issue that can rapidly get very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the foundation walls are bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowed foundation 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 probably a location that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are normally improperly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area 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 sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
