Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can rapidly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls 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 not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To fix bowing basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowed basement wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. 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 system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
