Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly become very serious. Your basement walls job 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 support the building much more. If the problem continues to increase, it is possible for the walls to fail and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct buckling foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing basement wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you only worry about when there is a noticeable problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces 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 have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're seeing cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of window frames or doors, this is a sign that there is a problem with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Palmer area due to the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year. These issues are also caused by improper soil compaction while the home was being built.
