Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly become very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowing foundation wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed and are regularly messy, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. They are notorious for having excess humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know 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 have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
