Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a problem that can rapidly become very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowed foundation walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowing basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having humidity issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. 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 the floor joists and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
