Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly get 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 not be able to do their job for much longer. If the bowing continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To correct bowing basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling again. The anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
