Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly get very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are buckling inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to increase, 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 house could collapse. To correct bowed basement walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having excess humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary 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 system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
