Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a 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 pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any more. The anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. 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 the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
