how wall anchors work


Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue that can quickly become 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 buckling into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair bowed foundation walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.


If you've got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.

If you're seeing cracks in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of the window or doors, this is a sign that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the York area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. They are also caused by improper soil compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a piering system under your home that will shift the load of the home to the piers and keep the home from sinking or settling in the future.
