Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor problem that can quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To fix bowed foundation walls, our team uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system 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 will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
