Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pressing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To fix bowing basement walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowing basement wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly closed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
