The basement is an important area of your home whether it is being used for storage or if you have a finished space down there. Because of this, it is important that the entire space is dry and excess humidity is controlled. Due to the fact that water can get into your basement through a variety of different places, there needs to be a number of repair solutions and products that we can use to keep the area safe. The most common places that we see water leaks is through cracks in the foundation walls, whether these are in concrete or at mortar joints between blocks, at the cove joint, where the foundation walls and floor connect, and finally at windows that may be at or below the soil.
Regardless of where you're having the problem we've got solutions that can control, divert, and eject the water from your basement. If there are leaking basement cracks, the first step is implementing a wall crack repair to prevent the crack from growing and leaking. If the water is entering at the cove joint or even your windows, installing a custom drainage system will help remove the water from your basement. In some problematic instances, usually with stone, brick, or block foundations on older homes, we can install an entire wall solution that is comprised of a full height liner to collect and divert water. Occasionally there is already a waterproofing system in place but it struggles to keep up with the water, we can replace it with a new, more powerful sump pump to help the system keep up with the demand. In addition to installing systems, we can also help you evaluate the drainage in your yard to help keep water from sitting next to the home and seeping in.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is quite possibly one of the most important parts. It not only supports the structure itself but it also is the basement walls. If you've got foundation problems, normally they will present themselves in the form of diagonal cracks in your brickwork, cracks that run along the foundation or along the basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that your doors will get stuck or even cracks at the corners of them. There may also be a problem where your basement walls are buckling into the area. You may not think these problems seem critical at first, each of them are indicators of a sinking or settling foundation and it is important to have an expert evaluate the foundation for specific problems to determine what type of a repair needs to be in place.
Thankfully, the most common foundation problems are caused by similar things and our experts are very good at spotting these problems. We can offer a repair product that is for your particular issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If you've got a sloping foundation, we can install a system 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 are very strong and can help stabilize your foundation. If you've got bowing basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, there are some different options. Our team can install a series of wall anchors which are 2 large steel plates and these are connected by a long, steel rod, or c shaped braces that we mount directly against the cracks to force the section back in line and prevent further bowing, or even carbon fiber staples to strengthen weak spots and prevent the wall from bowing. If they are correctly installed, these products can correct the bowing wall and prevent it from coming out of alignment again.
Crawl Space Solutions
In Beverly Shores, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas in addition to basements. For a long time, they were constructed with open vents to the outside where were intended to help air flow into the space and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. Having open vents allows water to enter the space during rain and snow storms and the vents prevent proper evaporation which results in the humidity level staying too high which can foster the growth of mildew. Up to 50% of the air in your home comes up through the crawl space so ensuring this area is protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity can improve the overall air quality in your home.
Perma-Seal has been working with crawl spaces since 1979 and we know the proper way to seal them off and control high humidity. This is done using a method known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty liner, occasionally installed with insulation products, which are heavy duty plastic and vinyl sheets as well as vent covers and a sturdy door that can seal the area totally and prevent any unwanted moisture from entering. This will also prevent rodents and animals from getting in your crawl space which will help keep any appliances there safe and allow you to use it for storage. After your crawl space is closed off, we can install a combination dehumidifier and air filter. This will prevent high levels of humidity in addition to removing pollutants from the air.
We also offer a variety of services to help improve the basement and crawl space areas of your home. We can upgrade your basement windows to improve the air flow or provide additional light in the area. After we install a waterproofing system, we can help with pre-finishing the area by installing a wall system that is both waterproof and resistant to mildew growth. If you are building a new home, we can install a system of new construction waterproofing systems to stop any potential future water problems. Even if you've have a waterproofing system we did not install in place, we can perform our preventive maintenance testing so you know it will continue to work at peak efficiency.
