Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly get very serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are buckling inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To fix bowing basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowing wall once installed. 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 most likely a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
