Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are bowing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is probably because they are generally improperly closed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having moisture issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control 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 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 restore the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
