Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a issue that can quickly 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 foundation walls are pushing 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 is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of window or doors, this is an indicator that there are problems with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Kiron area due to the moisture content of the soil go up and down throughout the year. The problems are also caused by inadequate compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a piering system under your house which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
