If there is stagnant water in the basement following a big rain, it is not good. When this water stays around, it will keep you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even prevent you from using that space as another room. Excess water and humidity will eventually cause mold and mildew to grow which can ultimately lead to health problems. If you're noticing standing water in your basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can evaluate the flooding and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which will stop water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This system will stop the growth of mold and make it 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 foundation walls are a minor problem that can quickly get very serious. Your basement walls job 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 result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If there are cracks in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of the window or door frames, this is one of the signs that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Cortland area as a result of the moisture content of the soil rise and fall during the year. They are occasionally caused by poor soil compaction while the home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your house that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
