If there is standing water in the basement after a big rain, this is never good. When this water is not removed, it can prevent you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even prevent you from using that space as another room. Excess water and humidity will eventually harbor mold and mildew which can in the future lead to health problems. If you've got standing water in your basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can look into the leaking and help come up with a basement waterproofing solution which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from occurring. This can prevent the growth of mold and also help so you can finally be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a issue that can rapidly become very serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to get worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair

An additional sign could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Modale area as the moisture content of the soil go up and down throughout the year. They are sometimes caused by inadequate compaction during original construction of the home.
