Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are pressing inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem continues to get worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, CLS uses a system of wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowing foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely an area that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
