Professional Foundation Repair
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it is and the location of the damage we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Brentwood area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open vents allows water to get in during heavy rain. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold. With homes that have crawl spaces, up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof line, sometimes accompanied by a sump pump to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Water in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
