When this water stays around, it can prevent you from being able to keep items in the area and even keep you from using that space as another room. Excess water and humidity will eventually cause mold and mildew to grow which can ultimately be responsible for health problems.

This system can stop the growth of mold and also enable you to be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are bowing 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 for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix buckling foundation walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowed foundation wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bucking are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the window frames or doors, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Elk Creek area due to the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. The problems are sometimes caused by poor compaction while the home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your home that will shift the load of the home to the piers and keep the home from sinking or settling in the future.
