Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement 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 buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To correct bowed basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely a location that you will only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are known for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging 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 extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracks in your foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of the window frames or doors, this is an indicator that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Hopkins area as a result of the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are occasionally caused by poor compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a network of piers under your home that will shift the load of your home to the piers and keep the home from sinking or settling in the future.
