If you've seen standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the flooding and help create a basement waterproofing system which will stop water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening. This will stop the growth of mold and enable you to have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, an extra room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor issue that can 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 pressing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing keeps getting worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To correct bowing basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely an area that you will only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've seen cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of your windows or doorways, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Tarkio area due to the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. The problems are also caused by inadequate compaction while the home was being built. Our team can install a piering system under your house which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
