Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are buckling into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowed wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
