Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing keeps getting worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly closed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. 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 series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
