Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a problem that can rapidly get very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pressing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To fix bowed foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowed foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is because they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture problems that could 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 seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
