Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor issue that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are bowing inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct buckling basement walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowing wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair

Another sign could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even not moving when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Fairfax area as the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. The problems are sometimes caused by improper compaction during original construction of the home.
