Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly get very serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pushing inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are usually poorly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess moisture problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent 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 your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
