If there is water in your basement following a big rain, it is not good. When this water is not controlled, it can prevent you from being able to store items in the area and even prevent you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately harbor mold and mildew which can eventually be a cause of health problems. If you've got standing water in the basement, you should contact us so one of our experts can look into the leaking and help implement a basement waterproofing system which can control water coming in and prevent any additional problems from happening. This system can stop the growth of mold and also make it so you can finally be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are pushing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing again. These anchors can be professionally installed in a day and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only go into when there is a problem. This is probably because they are usually poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces 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 problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore 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.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracking in your foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of window or doorways, this is an indicator that there is a problem with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when closing them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Salem area as a result of the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. These issues are sometimes caused by poor soil compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a piering system under your home which will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
