Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a minor issue that can quickly get very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pressing into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, our team uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to 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 the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
