Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are buckling into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing continues to get worse, 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 location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix bowing foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowed wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only go to when there is a problem. This is because they are usually poorly closed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of your windows or doors, this is an indicator that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Bruno area as the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. The problems are also caused by improper compaction while the home was being built. Our professionals can install a network of piers under your house which will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
