Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly become very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are buckling inward, 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 for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally poorly closed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
