Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are bowing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowed basement wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely an area that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly sealed and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as 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 the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
