Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a problem that can quickly become very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pushing into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. 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 home above could collapse. To correct bowing foundation walls, CLS uses a system of wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.

They are known for having moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests.

To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
