Uneven Wall in Crawl Space
As you can tell from this picture, the wall was moving inward. This bowing wall is a sign of a house settling and it is not good. This cracking also allows for water to enter the crawl space.
Sinking Corner Shows Sign of Settling
You can see that the siding of this house is cracked and looks to be pushed out. The house is setting into an area where there is unstable soil which causes the house to sink. The sinking causes the siding to be pushed into the ground where it is being pulled off the house.
Signs of Water Leaking into the Crawl Space
You can see from the dark spots on the block foundation wall that water is leaking in from the cracks caused by a bowing wall. Water in your crawl space is not good and could cause even more damage to your house.
GeoLock Wall Anchor Helps Stabilize a Bowing Wall
We added a GeoLock Wall Anchor to stabilize the wall and hopefully return it to the original position. This anchor is installed with minimal disruption to your lawn and crawl space/basement.
Piering the Corner of the House
We used Helical Piers to stabilize and restore the foundation. This can be installed year round quickly and effectively. While this will keep the house from sinking further, it can also help to lift it back up.
CleanSpace Installation for a Moisture Free Crawl Space
We installed CleanSpace to keep water, moisture, and mold out of the crawl space. CleanSpace is a very thick, durable liner that is installed to insulate the crawlspace as well as keep out water and humidity which cause mold. We also installed SilverGlo to insulate the crawl space and keep cold air out which helps to keep energy savings down.
SmartJacks Stabilize the Sagging Crawl Space
You can see here that we added SmartJacks to stabilize the sagging crawl space. SmartJacks support the failing structure but are adjustable and can be used to lift the floor beams to their original position. This will help to lift the house up and keep further damage from happening.
