Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are bowing inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing keeps getting worse, 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 area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix bowed foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system 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'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 extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
