Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue that can very quickly get very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pushing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct buckling basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. They are known for having moisture problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of your window or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when opening them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Graham area due to the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are also caused by inadequate soil compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a piering system under your house which will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
