how wall anchors work


Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue that can quickly become very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the foundation walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowing foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.


If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. 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 level the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.

If you have cracks in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of the window or door frames, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Sioux Center area as the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. They are also caused by inadequate soil compaction when your home was being built.
