Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue 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 bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem continues to get worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix buckling basement walls, our experts uses a system of wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowing foundation wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity issues 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 this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, 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 crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've seen cracks in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of your windows or doors, this is one of the signs that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Harrisburg area due to the moisture content of the soil go up and down during the year. The problems are also caused by poor soil compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your house that will shift the load of the home to the piers and keep the house from sinking or settling in the future.
