Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pressing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above 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 prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowing foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is a problem.

They are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
