Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a problem that can quickly become very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowing basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. 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 will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
