Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly 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 pushing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to get worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct buckling basement walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having humidity 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 crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracking in the foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of window or doors, this is one of the signs that there is a problem with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Maitland area as a result of the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. They are also caused by inadequate compaction while the home was being built. Our team can install a piering system under your foundation which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and keep the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
