Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a problem that can quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls 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 be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse.

If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can even have critters living in 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 this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
