If you've seen water in your basement following a big rain, it is never good. If this water is present, it will keep you from having the ability to store items in the area and even keep you from turning that space into another room. Excess water and humidity will eventually harbor mold and mildew which could lead to health problems. If you have standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can investigate the problem and help design a basement waterproofing system which will prevent water coming in and prevent any additional problems from occurring. This will stop the growth of mold and also make it so you can be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even a spare bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a minor issue that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the bowing keeps getting worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowing foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to 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 level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're seeing cracking in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of window or door frames, this is an indicator that there is a problem with your foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Guide Rock area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. These issues are occasionally caused by poor compaction when your home was being built.
