Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor problem that can quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the foundation walls are buckling into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To fix buckling foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowed foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are normally improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging 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 crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
