Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a minor issue that can quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are bowing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To fix buckling basement walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bowing more are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging 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 prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
