Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can quickly become very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are pressing inward, 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 result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To correct bowed foundation walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly closed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters living in them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
