If you have stagnant water in the basement following a big rainfall, it is not good. When this water is not removed, it can prevent you from having the ability to store items in the area and even stop you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity also has the ability cause the growth of mildew and mold which could ultimately be a cause of life threatening health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can evaluate the water and help implement a basement waterproofing system which can stop water coming in and prevent any additional problems from happening. This system can also control the growth of mold and also make it so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pushing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only visit when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are normally improperly sealed off and are frequently messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even cause 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 unnecessary 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 them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're seeing cracking in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of windows or doorways, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when closing them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Moorefield area due to the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year. These issues are occasionally caused by improper soil compaction during the building of your home. Our team can install a piering system under your foundation that will shift the load of your home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
