Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To fix bowing basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowing foundation wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. They are notorious for having excess moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging 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 extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
