how wall anchors work


Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly get very serious. Your basement walls job 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 could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowed foundation wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.


If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. 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 will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
