When there is stagnant water in your basement after a large rainfall, this is not good. When this water is not removed, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even prevent you from turning that space into another room.

how wall anchors work


Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are buckling into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling continues to get worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.


If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in 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 an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control excess 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 series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.

If you have cracks in your foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of your windows or doorways, this is an indicator that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Lindsay area as the moisture content of the soil fluctuates during the year. These issues are also caused by improper compaction during original construction of the home. Our experts can install a piering system under your house which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
