NC based Charlotte Crawlspace Solutions, LLC (CCSS) would like to make residents of Indian Trail North Carolina aware of their foundation repair services. The foundation of a building is probably the most important part of the building, which means it is necessary to ensure that any damage it sustains is repaired promptly by a highly qualified professional. Mistakes made during the repair of a building’s foundations can have catastrophic consequences. Fortunately, Charlotte Crawlspace Solutions’ foundation repair services ensure that every building in the area’s foundation is in excellent condition and remains so for years to come.
The company says, “With over 30 years of combined construction, engineering and on-the-job experience, your home or business is on a solid foundation with CCSS. We will diagnose, inspect, repair and remedy the problem and make your crawlspace or basement drier, your home safer and your wallet happier. We also guarantee the quality of our work. If you are plagued with strange, musty odors, wet basements or damp crawlspaces, call immediately for your free inspection.”
Many of the problems with basements are a result of moisture problems. Water problems are often caused by external factors, often due to landscaping or house rainwater runoff, among many other reasons. Additionally, water damage can lead to cracking, which then allows even more water in, causing further damage.
Distinct forms of cracking are caused by different structural issues, and each requires a unique solution. Horizontal cracking, for example, is usually caused by structural issues, such as in the bond between blocks being broken. Frost, backfilling or an unbalanced load can cause horizontal cracking. A situation involving this type of cracking should be monitored for continued bowing (which may be indicative of additional damage).
Vertical wall cracks are another matter entirely. Charlotte Crawlspace Solutions says, “Vertical cracks are usually not structurally related. If the vertical crack in your crawl space foundation is out of the vertical plane of the wall, bowed inward, near the corners, wider at the top or bottom or near the top or soil line of your crawl space foundation, don’t wait, call CCSS. We have a subcontractor that specializes in these types of problems. The crack could be a sign that your foundation is in serious trouble.”
Diagonal wall cracks are almost always a sign of structural issues. A diagonal crack tears through the material instead of following the mortar joints. Being able to identify the structural issue that may be the cause or source of a crack can help with finding a solution for the problem. CCSS works with local, licensed structural engineers on any project that requires engineering input or design work to come up with effective solutions for problems involving all kinds of cracking among other foundation issues. They also have a subcontractor that specializes in foundation repair. CCSS also handles foundation repair jobs that other contractors have neither the tools nor the expertise to handle.
The company has received dozens of 5-Star reviews from happy customers in the area. One review from Diane says, “While preparing our house for resale, water intrusion was detected in our crawlspace. We began seeking a good contractor who could resolve this situation. After securing three estimates for the installation of a drainage system, new insulation and vapor barrier, we chose Carlos with Charlotte Crawlspace Solutions. A Consultant was dispatched to do a thorough inspection and make recommendations. We received pictures of the area and a design for the drainage system that would eliminate our problem. Carlos and his crew went to work immediately, and we found them to be professional, trustworthy, dependable, reasonably priced and very thorough, while keeping us informed concerning their progress. For any crawlspace issues, I highly recommend Carlos and his team at Charlotte Crawlspace Solutions. Our crawlspace looks so good now that I wouldn’t mind spending time under there!”
Haley, another customer, says in their review, “Carlos and team were great to work with, and quick to get back to me with answers to my questions. Work was done quickly and professionally!”
