When you have water in your basement after a heavy storm, it is never good. If this water is not controlled, it will prevent you from being able to keep items in the basement and even stop you from using that space as another room. Excess moisture and humidity can also cause mold and mildew to grow which can ultimately be a cause of dangerous health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the water and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which will stop water coming in and prevent any additional problems from occurring. This system will also prevent the growth of mold as well as help so you can finally be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even an extra bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly become very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the 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 the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowed wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only go into when there is a problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. They are known for having excess humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to 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 correct the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're seeing cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of your window frames or door frames, 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 are difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Auburn area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. These issues are sometimes caused by inadequate soil compaction during the building of your home. Our professionals can install a piering system 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.
