Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a issue that can very quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the foundation walls are bowing inward, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the bowing keeps happening, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed foundation wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only worry about when there is a problem. This is because they are generally improperly closed off and are regularly messy, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having excess moisture issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of window or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Marion area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. They are also caused by poor soil compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a piering system under your home which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
