Basement Waterproofing

When you've got stagnant water in your basement after a heavy rainfall, this is not good. When this water is not controlled, it can keep you from having the ability to store items in the area and even keep you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity can also cause mold and mildew to grow which can be responsible for dangerous health problems. If you've seen standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can investigate the water and help create a basement waterproofing system which can control water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from occurring. This system can also prevent the growth of mold and also help so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.

Bowed Wall Repair

Bowing foundation walls are a issue that can rapidly become very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are pressing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair bowed foundation walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be installed quickly and can correct the bowing basement wall the same day. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bucking are almost none.

Crawl Spaces

If you've got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only go into when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are usually poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.

Foundation Settlement Repair

If you're seeing cracking in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of your windows or door frames, this is a sign that there is a problem with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Hudson area due to the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. They are sometimes caused by inadequate soil compaction while the home was being built. Our team can install a system of piers under your foundation which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and keep the foundation from sinking or settling in the future.
