Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to increase, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix bowing basement walls, our team uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowed wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having excess moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
