Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a problem that can quickly 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 bowing inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing keeps happening, 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. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix bowed foundation walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be expertly 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 almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to 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 excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracking in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of the window frames or doorways, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Archer area due to the moisture content of the soil go up and down throughout the year. These issues are occasionally caused by improper compaction when your home was being built. Our experts can install a network of piers under your house which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
