BOWED WALL REPAIR

Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly become very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are buckling into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To fix buckling basement walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are very low.

CRAWL SPACES

If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to 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 correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.

FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR

One of the other signs could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Viborg area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil go up and down throughout the year. They are also caused by improper soil compaction while the home was being built. Our team can install a piering system under your home which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.
