If you've got water in the basement following a big rainfall, it is never good.

BOWED WALL REPAIR
Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly 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 pressing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct buckling foundation walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowing wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are usually poorly closed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters living in them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR
If you've seen cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of your window frames or doors, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when moving them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Sheldon area as the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. These issues are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction while the home was being built. Our professionals can install a piering system under your foundation that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
