BOWED WALL REPAIR
Buckling 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 basement walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct buckling foundation walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess 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 system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR
If you're seeing cracking in your foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of your window frames or door frames, this is a sign that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not moving when moving them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Vermillion area as the moisture content of the soil fluctuates during the year. The problems are sometimes caused by inadequate compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a network of piers under your foundation that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and keep the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
