Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are buckling inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct buckling foundation walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
