Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the walls are pressing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing keeps getting worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is because they are normally improperly closed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're seeing cracking in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of your window or doorways, this is an indicator that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Pickrell area due to the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. These issues are sometimes caused by inadequate soil compaction during original construction of the home. Our experts can install a system of piers under your foundation that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and stop the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
