Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall 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 bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. They are known for having humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of window or door frames, this is one of the signs that there are problems with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Rock Port area as the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year. They are sometimes caused by poor compaction during the building of your home. Our professionals can install a piering system under your foundation that will shift the load of your home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
