Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a minor issue that can very quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are bowing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct bowing foundation walls, our team uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally improperly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having excess humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracks in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of windows or doorways, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Farragut area as the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are also caused by inadequate soil compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a system of piers under your house that will shift the load of your home to the piers and keep the house from sinking or settling in the future.
