Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a problem that can 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 basement walls are pushing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only go to when there is a problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way 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 in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracking in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of your window frames or doors, this is one of the signs that there are problems 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 not moving when moving them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Mound City area as a result of the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. The problems are sometimes caused by poor compaction when your home was being built. Our experts can install a system of piers under your home which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
