Your basement is an important area of your home whether it is only being used for storage or have finished the area. Due to this, it is necessary that the entire area is dry and any flooding is prevented. Due to the fact that water is able to get into the basement by a number of different places, that means there have to be a number of repair options that we will install to keep the water under control. The main places that water is entering is through cracks in the foundation walls, which are usually in concrete or at mortar joints between blocks, at the cove joint, which is where the foundation walls and floor connect, and finally at the windows that may be at or below grade.
Regardless of where the problem lies there are solutions that can control, divert, and eject water from your basement. If you've got dripping basement cracks, the first thing to do is installing a wall crack repair method to stop the crack from leaking and growing. When water is entering at the cove joint or even at the 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 will install an entire wall solution that is a floor to ceiling heavy duty liner to collect and divert water. Sometimes people already have a waterproofing system in the basement but it is unable to keep up with flooding water, we can replace it with a new, more powerful sump pump to make the system as good as new. On top of installing systems, we can also improve the drainage in your yard to help stop water from pooling next to the home and seeping in.
Structural Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is quite possibly one of, if not the, most important parts. It not only holds the building itself but it also is the basement walls. When you have any foundation problems, usually, they will present themselves as stair stepping cracks in your outside brickwork, long cracks that run the length of the foundation or along basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that your doors and windows will get stuck or even cracks at the corners of them. You may also see an issue where your basement walls are pressing inward. While these problems may not seem serious when you notice them, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for problems to determine if a repair needs to be performed.
Thankfully, the most common foundation problems are caused by similar things and our experts are very good at evaluating these problems. We can implement a repair product that is for your exact issue to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we will implement a series of foundation piers to correct the problem. Depending on how bad it is and where it is, we will use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can help stabilize your foundation. If your basement walls are bowing, depending on how the severity of the bowing wall, it can be solved with a few potential options. Our team can utilize a series of wall anchors, these are 2 large plates that 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 carbon fiber straps to strengthen weak areas and prevent the wall from bowing. When properly used, these products will correct the bowed wall and stop it from coming out of alignment again.
Crawl Space Solutions
In our area, many of the homes were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years, these were built with vents which was intended to increase air flow through the area and keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is rarely what happens. Having open vents allows water to get in when it rains or snows and then it never leaves which results in the humidity level staying too high which can foster the growth of mildew. Up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space so having the space closed off from the outside and controlling excess humidity will increase the overall air quality in your home.
Perma-Seal has been encapsulating crawl spaces since 1979 and we know the best way to close them off and control the humidity. We do this using a process called encapsulation which is the installation of a thick liner or vapor barrier, sometimes accompanied by insulation products, and are thick plastic and vinyl sheeting as well as vent covers and a sturdy door that will close off the area totally and stop any unwanted moisture from entering. Closing the area will also stop bugs 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 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 the basement and crawl space areas of your home. We can upgrade your basement windows to increase the air flow or increase the amount of light in the area. During basement waterproofing, we can install our wall system as part of a pre-finishing service that is waterproof and resistant to the growth of mildew. When you are building a new home, our new construction waterproofing solutions can prevent any water from entering the home before it can become a problem. Even if you've have a competitors waterproofing system in place, we can perform our preventive maintenance testing to ensure it continues to work at peak efficiency.
