Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor issue that can rapidly get very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pressing into the basement, this is a sign 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 you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct bowing basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowed wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. 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 can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair

One of the other signs could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Omaha area due to the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. The problems are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction while the home was being built.
