Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly become very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To correct bowing basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall once installed. Once 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 a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally poorly closed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. 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 them and restore the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
