Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pressing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To fix buckling foundation walls, CLS uses a system of wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only go into when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are generally poorly sealed and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are known for having excess humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
