Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can very quickly become very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowing wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bucking are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can have critters living in them. They are notorious for having excess humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
