When you have water in the basement after a big rainfall, this is not good. When this water is not controlled, it can keep you from being able to keep items in the area and even stop you from using that space as another room.

Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly get very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are bowing 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 for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To fix buckling foundation walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowed foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are normally improperly closed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. They are known for having moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
