Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor problem that can rapidly 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 inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
