If you've got standing water in the basement following a large rainfall, this is not good. If this water is not controlled, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even prevent you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually harbor mold and mildew which can be responsible for life threatening health problems. If you've got standing water in your basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the leaking and help implement a basement waterproofing system which can control water coming in and prevent any additional problems from occurring. This can control the growth of mold as well as make it so you can have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, an extra room, or even an extra bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a issue that can very quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are bowing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowed foundation walls, CLS uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowing basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you only go to when there is a problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them 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 series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If there are cracking in the foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of window frames or doors, this is one of the signs that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when closing them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Linwood area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. These issues are occasionally caused by improper soil compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a network of piers under your home which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
