Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are pushing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix bowing basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowing basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable 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 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 series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of window frames or doorways, this is one of the signs that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Merna area due to the moisture content of the soil fluctuates during the year. They are sometimes caused by poor compaction when your home was being built.
