Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue 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 bowing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix buckling basement walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture issues that could cause damage to 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 close them off from the exterior. 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 them and level the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
