We recommend this because there are some potentially dangerous problems that can happen along with these issues such as mildew, reduced structural integrity, and even permanent foundation damage.

Your basement is a very important part of the home regardless of if you're using it as storage or if you have a finished space down there. Due to this, it is important that the entire area is dry and any flooding is prevented. Due to the fact that water can get into your basement using a number of different places, there are a number of repair options that we will install to keep the area safe. The most common places that we find water leaking is through cracks in the basement walls, whether these are in concrete or at the joints where the blocks meet, at the cove joint, where the basement wall and floor meet, and at the windows that are at or even below grade.
No matter where the problem lies there are solutions that will control, divert, and eject water from the basement. If there are dripping wall cracks, the first step is implementing a wall crack repair method to prevent the crack from growing and leaking. If water is coming in at the cove joint or even basement windows, having a custom drainage system installed can help remove the water from the basement. In some of the more extreme locations, usually with stone, brick, or block foundations on older homes, we will install an entire wall solution that is a floor to ceiling heavy duty liner to collect and divert water. Occasionally there is already a waterproofing system in the basement but it struggles to keep up with demand, we can install a new, upgraded sump pump to breathe new life into the system. We aren't just installing systems, we can also help you evaluate the drainage in the yard to help stop water from sitting at the foundation and seeping in.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your homes foundation is easily one of, if not the, most important areas of the home. It not only supports the structure itself but it also creates the basement walls. If there are foundation problems, they will generally present themselves as stair-step cracks in your brickwork, cracks that run along the foundation or across basement walls. You may also notice that your doors and windows will stick when you open or close them or even cracks at the corners of them. There may also be an issue where your basement walls are buckling into the area. While these issues may not seem critical at first, each of them are indicative of a sinking or settling foundation and it is important to have an expert evaluate the foundation for specific problems and determine what type of a repair needs to be performed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems are caused by similar things and our professionals are very good at spotting those problems. We can utilize a repair product designed for your specific issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we will install a series of foundation piers to stabilize the foundation. Depending on how bad it is and where it is, we will use either helical piers or push piers. Both types of piers are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you've got bowing basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we have a few possible options. Our team can install a number of wall anchors which are 2 large plates that are connected by a long, steel rod, or c shaped braces that sit vertically against the cracks to force the section back in line and stop further bowing, or carbon fiber staples to strengthen weak areas and prevent the wall from bowing. When properly used, these products will correct the buckling wall and prevent it from coming out of alignment.
Crawl Space Solutions
In Beverly Shores, there are many homes that are built with crawl spaces instead of basements. For a long time, these were constructed with vents to the outside where were intended to help fresh air flow into the area and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. Having open vents allows water to get in during rain and snow storms and then it never leaves which causes the humidity levels to stay high which can foster the growth of mildew. Studies have shown that up to ½ of the air in your home enters through the crawl space so ensuring the crawl space is closed off from the weather and keeping the humidity levels low will increase the overall air quality in your home.
Perma-Seal has been working with crawl spaces since 1979 and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control the humidity. This is done using a method called encapsulation which is the installation of a thick liner or vapor barrier, sometimes accompanied by insulation products, which are strong plastic and vinyl sheeting as well as vent covers and a sturdy door that will seal the area totally and prevent any unwanted moisture from entering. This will also prevent rodents and animals from getting in the crawl space which will help keep any appliances there safe and allow you to use it for storage. Once your crawl space is closed off, we will install an air quality control system which is a dehumidifier and air filter. It will control any excess humidity as well as remove pollutants from the air.
We also provide a number of services to help improve your basement area. We can upgrade, replace, or install new basement windows to increase the air flow or provide additional light in the area. During basement waterproofing, we can install a wall system that is waterproof and resistant to the growth of mildew. If you are building a new home, we can install a system of new construction waterproofing systems to prevent any potential future water problems. Even if you've already got a waterproofing system in place, we can perform our preventive maintenance inspection to ensure it continues to work at peak efficiency.
