Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or 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 bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing continues to increase, 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 bowed basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that can 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 seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracking in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of the window or doors, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when opening them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Geneva area as the moisture content of the soil go up and down during the year. They are sometimes caused by improper compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a network of piers under your house that will shift the weight of your home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
