Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a problem that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail 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 fix bowed basement walls, CLS uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more.

If you have a a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly closed off and are regularly unkempt, dirty, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control excess 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 series 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.
