Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly become very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are buckling into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct bowing foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bucking are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is because they are usually poorly sealed and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having excess moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If there are cracking in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the window frames or doors, this is an indicator that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when moving them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Farragut area as the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. They are also caused by inadequate compaction while the home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your foundation which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
