how wall anchors work


Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly become very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To fix buckling foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.


If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows 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 unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.

One of the other signs could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Blair area as the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction while the home was being built. Our professionals can install a piering system under your home that will shift the weight of your home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.
