When you have stagnant water in your basement following a large storm, this is never good. When this water stays around, it can keep you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even stop you from using that space as another room.

If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can investigate the water and help design a basement waterproofing solution which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This system can stop the growth of mold and also make it so you can have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even an extra bedroom.

how wall anchors work


Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pressing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowed wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.


If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.

If you're noticing cracking in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of your window frames or doorways, this is one of the signs that there is a problem with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Grand Island area as the moisture content of the soil rise and fall during the year. They are occasionally caused by improper compaction during original construction of the home. Our team can install a piering system under your foundation which will shift the load of your home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
