Bowing Crawspace in Milaca, MN

Monday, October 10th, 2016 by Maggie Moen


Linda V. called Innovative Basement Authority after her crawlspace began to settle and the walls to bow. Eric Rysdam, Certified Field Inspector, met with Linda to discuss her options. When dealing with a bowing crawlspace wall your options to re-correct the damage to the wall can be limited with dealing with a smaller space. Along with foundation problems, the crawlspace was also damp and caused for high heat bills in the winter months since it wasn't encapsulated.


To help with high heat bills, a crew sprayed Closed Cell Sprayfoam, installed DrainageMatting, a Vent Cover, and CrawlSeal liner. For the bowing walls, Wall Anchors were installed to permanently stabilize the foundation walls. Since the job was completed, Linda has already noticed her walls becoming straighter, and her heat bills have reduced dramatically.
