Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are buckling into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse 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. To repair bowing foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. They are notorious for having excess moisture problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair

Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Eustis area as the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year.
