Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a issue that can rapidly become very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To repair bowed basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowing foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having humidity problems that could cause problems with 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 encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as 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 level the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
