Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a issue that can rapidly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pushing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
