Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue that can quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pressing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair bowed foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem.

Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary 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 control excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
