Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a 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 buckling inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To correct buckling basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowing basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If there are cracking in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of window frames or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even not moving when moving them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Riverton area due to the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are occasionally caused by improper soil compaction when your home was being built. Our experts can install a network of piers under your foundation that will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
