Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor issue that can very quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation 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 bring the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause 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 unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
