Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor problem that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, our team uses a system of wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing 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 an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly closed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
