Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly become very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to increase, 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 fix buckling foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control issues 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 can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
