When you've seen stagnant water in your basement after a heavy rainfall, it is not good. If this water is not removed, it will keep you from being able to store items in the area and even prevent you from using that space as another room. Excess water and humidity can ultimately cause mold and mildew to grow which could in the future lead to dangerous health problems. If there is standing water in your basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can investigate the problem and help create a basement waterproofing system which will prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This system will stop the growth of mold and also help so you can finally be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can rapidly get very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are buckling inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are usually poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of your windows or doorways, this is one of the signs that there are problems with your foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Braddyville area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. The problems are sometimes caused by poor compaction while the home was being built. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your house that will shift the weight of your home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
