Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor issue 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 bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix bowed foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bowing more are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly closed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of windows or doors, this is one of the signs that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Stamford area as the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year. These issues are also caused by improper compaction during original construction of the home. Our experts can install a system of piers under your house which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
