If you've seen standing water in your basement following a large storm, it is never good. If this water is not controlled, it can keep you from having the ability to store items in the area and even prevent you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually harbor mold and mildew which can in the future be responsible for life threatening health problems. If there is standing water in your basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can look into the flooding and help implement a basement waterproofing system which can stop water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from happening. This system can also prevent the growth of mold and make it so you can have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an additional bedroom.
BOWED WALL REPAIR
Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are bowing inward, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing continues to increase, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix bowing foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR
If you're seeing cracking in your foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the windows or doorways, this is one of the signs that there are problems with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Hastings area due to the moisture content of the soil rise and fall during the year. The problems are occasionally caused by poor soil compaction during the building of your home. Our professionals can install a network of piers under your house which will shift the load of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
