Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a issue that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, our team uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowing foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. They are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them 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 can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've seen cracks in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of windows or door frames, this is one of the signs that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Neola area as a result of the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are occasionally caused by inadequate soil compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your house which will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
