Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor issue that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pressing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To correct bowed foundation walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowed wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are usually improperly closed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
