Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor problem 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 bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct bowing foundation walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.

Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as 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 them and correct the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
