Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly get very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To correct buckling foundation walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably 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 known for having excess humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
