Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can rapidly become very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pushing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. 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 can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
