It is critical that if you've found an issue with your foundation, crawl space or basement that you get in touch with an experienced repair company. We say this as there are quite a few additional issues that will happen along with these issues including black mold, reduced structural integrity, and even permanent foundation damage. No matter if you are in need of our basement waterproofing products to prevent water damage in your home, foundation repair services to stop cracks from growing in the foundation, or crawl space services to control mold growth in the crawl space, our team is here to help you.
The basement is an important area of your home whether you're using it as a storage area or have finished the area. This means it is important that the entire space is dry and excess humidity is controlled. Since water can get into your basement by a variety of different paths, there are a number of repair possibilities that we can use to prevent damage to the area. The most common places that water is entering is through cracks in the foundation walls, whether these are in concrete or at the joints where the blocks meet, at the cove joint, where the foundation wall and floor connect, and at the windows that may be at or below grade.
Regardless of where the problem lies we have solutions that are designed to control, transport, and eject water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, the first thing to do is installing a wall crack repair procedure to control the crack growth and leaking. If water is coming in at the cove joint or even basement windows, having a custom drainage system installed will remove the water from your basement. In some of the more extreme cases, occasionally with old homes that have stone, block, or brick foundations, we can install one of our entire wall solution that is a floor to ceiling liner that will collect and divert water. If you've already got a waterproofing system installed but it is unable to keep up with flooding water, we can replace it with a new, upgraded sump pump to make the system as good as new. In addition to installing systems, we can also improve the drainage in your yard to assist with preventing water from standing next to the home and seeping in.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is easily one of, if not the, most important areas of the home. It not only holds the home itself but it also is the basement walls. If you have any foundation problems, normally they will present themselves in the form of diagonal cracks in the outside brickwork, horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along basement walls. You may also notice that the windows or doors will get stuck or even cracks at the corners of them. You may also have an issue where the basement walls are bowing into the basement. You may not think these issues seem problematic when you notice them, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for particular problems and determine if a repair needs to be performed.
It is good that many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing those issues. We can offer a repair solution intended for your particular issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If you've got a settling foundation, we can implement 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 are very strong and are able to stabilize your foundation. If you've got bowing basement walls, depending on how the severity of the bowing wall, it can be solved with some different options. We can utilize a number of wall anchors, these are 2 large steel plates and these are connected by a long, steel rod, or c shaped braces that sit vertically against the cracks to push the section back in line and prevent further bowing, or even carbon fiber straps to strengthen along cracks and prevent the wall from bowing. When properly used, these products can straighten the bowed wall and stop it from coming out of alignment again.
Crawl Space Solutions
In Beverly Shores, many of the homes are built with crawl space areas and not basements. For many years, these were constructed with vents which was intended to increase air flow through the space and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. The vents allow water to get in when it rains or snows and the vents hinder airflow which causes the humidity levels to stay high which will eventually foster the growth of mold and mildew. We have found that up to half of the air in your home has come up through the crawl space so ensuring the crawl space is closed off from the outside and keeping the humidity levels low can increase the overall air quality in your home.
Perma-Seal has been helping customers with their crawl spaces as long as we have been in business and we know the best way to seal them off and control high humidity. This is done using a method called encapsulation which is the installation of a thick liner or vapor barrier, occasionally installed with insulation products, which are thick plastic and vinyl sheeting as well as vent covers and a heavy duty door that can seal the area totally and stop any unwanted moisture from entering. This will also stop rodents and animals from moving in your crawl space which will keep any equipment there safe and allow you to use it for storage. Once the crawl space is closed off, we can install an air filter and dehumidifier to improve the indoor air quality. It will prevent high levels of humidity as well as remove pollutants from the air.
We also provide a variety of services to upgrade the basement and crawl space areas of your home. We carry basement windows to increase the air flow or provide additional light in the area. When waterproofing the basement, we can install our wall system as part of a pre-finishing service that is waterproof as well as resistant to the growth of mold and mildew. If you are building a new home, we can install a system of new construction waterproofing systems to stop any water from entering the home before it can become a problem. 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.
