Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowed foundation wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having 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 prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal 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 them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
