Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are bowing inward, 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 for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowing basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly closed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're seeing cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the windows or door frames, this is one of the signs that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Riverton area as a result of the moisture content of the soil rise and fall during the year. The problems are sometimes caused by improper compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your foundation that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
