Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can quickly get very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling continues to increase, 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 house could collapse. To repair bowed basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowed foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters holed up in 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 control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
