Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a issue that can quickly turn into one that is much more 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 pressing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go to 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. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracking in your foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of your window or doorways, this is a sign that there is a problem with your foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Wiota area due to the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. These issues are occasionally caused by inadequate soil compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a network of piers under your foundation that will shift the load of the home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
