Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly get very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are buckling inward, 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 result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a location that you will only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. 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 will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.

If you're seeing cracking in the foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of your window or doors, this is one of the signs that there are problems with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Hubbard area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are occasionally caused by improper soil compaction while the home was being built.
