Professional Foundation Repair
Your foundation is most likely 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 foundtion problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckly, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on the extent of the damage and where it is we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you've noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Bozman area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were intented help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these crawl space 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 mold growth. 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 team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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. Moisture in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
