Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. 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 continues to increase, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To correct bowed basement walls, CLS uses a system of wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowing foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been repaired, the probability of it bowing more are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is probably because they are normally poorly sealed off and are frequently messy, grimy, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. 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 can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're noticing cracks in the foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of window or door frames, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Tabor area due to the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. The problems are also caused by inadequate compaction during original construction of the home. Our experts can install a system of piers under your house which will shift the load of your home to the piers and stop the house from sinking or settling in the future.
