Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pressing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct bowed foundation walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues 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 your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
