Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor problem 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 foundation walls are bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem continues to increase, it is possible for the walls to fail 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 repair bowed basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowing foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to 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 level the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
