Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor problem that can rapidly 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 bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling continues to increase, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair bowed basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has 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 generally improperly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If there are cracks in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of the windows or doors, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Watson area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. They are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction while the home was being built. Our experts can install a piering system under your foundation which will shift the load of your home to the piers and keep the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
