Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a minor issue that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. 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 keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To correct bowed basement walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowed wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in the foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of windows or door frames, this is a sign that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Laurel area as the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. They are occasionally caused by poor compaction while the home was being built. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your foundation that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and keep the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
