Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a issue that can very quickly become 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 support the building much more. If the buckling continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the house could collapse. To fix buckling basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly messy, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
