Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a minor problem 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 support the building much more. If the bowing keeps getting 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 area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix buckling basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracking in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of your window or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Canton area as the moisture content of the soil go up and down during the year. The problems are also caused by poor compaction when your home was being built. Our experts can install a piering system under your home which will shift the load of the home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.
