Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are pushing inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement 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 wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowing basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters living in them. They are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
