Your basement is a very important area of the home regardless of if it is only being used for storage or have finished the area. Because of this, it is important that the entire space is dry and any type of flooding is prevented. Because water can get into the basement by a variety of possible places, that means there have to be a variety of repair possibilities that we will utilize to prevent damage to the area. The main places that water is entering is at cracks in the walls, which are usually in concrete or at mortar joints between blocks, at the cove joint, where the walls and floor connect, and finally at any windows that may be at or below the soil.
Regardless of where you're having the problem we've got solutions that are designed to control, divert, and remove water from the basement. If you have leaking cracks, the first thing to do is installing a wall crack repair procedure to control the crack growth and leaking. When water is leaking at the cove or even at basement windows, having a custom drainage system installed will remove the water from the basement. In some problematic instances, usually with older block, brick, or stone foundations, we will recommend installing an entire wall solution that is a full height liner that will collect and divert water. Sometimes people already have a waterproofing system in the basement but it struggles to keep up with the water, we can install a new, upgraded sump pump to breathe new life into the system. In addition to installing systems, we can also help you improve the drainage in the yard to help stop water from sitting next to the home and seeping in.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is easily one of, if not the, most important parts. It not only supports the structure itself but it also creates the basement walls. When you've got foundation problems, usually, they will present themselves as stair stepping cracks in your brickwork, long cracks that run the length of the foundation or across basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that your windows or doors will stick when you open or close them or there may be cracks at the corners of them. You may also have a problem where your basement walls are buckling into the basement. You may not think these problems seem problematic at first, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for particular problems to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
It is good that the most common foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at spotting these issues. We can utilize a repair solution designed for your exact issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation or walls. If you have a sinking foundation, we will install a series of foundation piers to stabilize the foundation. The location and amount of sinking will determine if we use helical or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you have basement walls that are bowing, depending on how much the wall is buckling, there are a few possible options. Our team can install a system of wall anchors, these are 2 large steel plates connected by a long, steel rod, or c shaped braces that sit vertically against the problem area to push the section back in line and stop further bowing, we also can apply carbon fiber straps to strengthen along cracks and prevent the wall from bowing. These products will correct the buckling wall and prevent it from coming out of alignment again.
Crawl Space Solutions
In our area, many of the homes are built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years, these were constructed with vents to the outside where were intended to help air flow through the space and keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is usually what happens. Having open vents allows water to get in when it rains or snows and the vents hinder airflow which results in the humidity level staying too high which will eventually harbor the growth of mildew. Up to 50% of the air in your home comes up through the crawl space so having the space protected from the weather and controlling excess humidity will improve the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been enclosing crawl spaces as long as we have been in business and we know the proper 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 sturdy plastic and vinyl sheets as well as covers to close off existing vents and a heavy duty door that will close off the area totally and prevent any unwanted moisture from entering. This will also prevent pests and animals from settling in the crawl space which will keep any appliances there safe and allow you to use it for storage. Once your crawl space is closed off, we will install a combination dehumidifier and air filter. This will reduce the excess humidity to a proper level as well as remove pollutants from the air.
We also offer a variety of services to upgrade your basement area. We can upgrade your basement windows to improve the air flow or provide additional light in the area. When waterproofing the basement, 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 already got a waterproofing system in place, we can perform our preventive maintenance testing so you know it will continue to work at peak efficiency.
