Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly become very serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pressing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair bowed foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If you have a a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are known for having moisture problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as 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 the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
