Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pressing 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 is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, CLS uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem.

Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity 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 outside. 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 can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging 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.
