BOWED WALL REPAIR
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are bowing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing continues to get worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowed basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR
If you have cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of the window or door frames, this is an indicator that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even not moving when moving them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Shelby area as a result of the moisture content of the soil go up and down during the year.
