Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a problem that can quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pressing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse.

These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowed wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level 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.
