Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor issue that can rapidly get very 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 a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing continues to get worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally poorly sealed and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to 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 the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
