Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a problem that can quickly become very serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the 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 buckling continues to get worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair

Settling foundations are fairly common in the Syracuse area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. These issues are also caused by inadequate compaction while the home was being built.
