If you've seen stagnant water in your basement following a heavy rain, this is not good. If this water is not removed, it can prevent you from having the ability to store items in the basement and even stop you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually cause the growth of mildew and mold which can ultimately be responsible for dangerous health problems. If you have standing water in your basement, you should contact us so one of our experts can evaluate the leaking and help create a basement waterproofing solution which can stop water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from happening. This system can also control the growth of mold as well as make it so you can be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, an extra room, or even a spare bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a issue that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are bowing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To correct bowed foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any more. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing basement wall the same day. Once the wall has been repaired, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly closed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sinking floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracking in your foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of the window or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with your foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Wilcox area as the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year. They are occasionally caused by improper soil compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a system of piers under your home which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.
