Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a problem that can rapidly become very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To correct bowing foundation walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem.

They are known for having excess humidity issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
