The basement is an important part of your home whether it is only being used for storage or have finished the area. Because of this, it is necessary that the area is dry and excess humidity and flooding are controlled. Due to the fact that water can get into the basement using a variety of possible paths, that means there have to be a number of repair solutions and products that we will utilize to keep the water under control. The most common places that we see water leaks is at cracks in the walls, whether these are in concrete or at the joints where the blocks meet, at the cove joint, where the walls and floor connect, and at any 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 dripping wall cracks, the first thing to do is implementing a wall crack repair to control the crack growth and leaking. If the water is leaking at the cove or even at basement windows, having a custom drainage system installed can remove the water from your basement. In some of the more extreme instances, usually with stone, brick, or block foundations on older homes, we will recommend installing an entire wall solution that is a floor to ceiling heavy duty liner that will collect and divert water. If you've already got a waterproofing system in place but it struggles to keep up with flooding water, we can install a new, more powerful sump pump to help the system keep up with the demand. We aren't just installing systems, we can also improve the drainage in your yard to help prevent water from standing next to the home and seeping in.
Structural Foundation Repair
The homes foundation is quite possibly one of the most important parts. It not only holds the building itself but it also forms the basement walls. If you have any foundation problems, they will generally present themselves in the form of stair-step cracks in your brickwork, cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. You may also notice 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 into the area. While these problems may not seem problematic when you notice them, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation which should be looked at by a professional for problems and determine if a repair needs to be performed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems have very similar causes and our professionals are very good at noticing those problems. We can implement a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation or walls. If the problem is a settling foundation, we will implement a system of foundation piers to stabilize the foundation. We will install either push piers or helical piers, depending on where and how bad the sinking is. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you've got bowing basement walls, depending on how badly the wall is bowing, there are some potential options. Our team can install a system of wall anchors which are 2 large steel plates and these are connected by a long, steel rod, or tall braces that are installed directly against the cracks to push the section back in line and stop further bowing, or even carbon fiber straps to strengthen weak areas and prevent the wall from bowing. These products will straighten the buckling wall and prevent it from coming out of alignment again.
Crawl Space Solutions
In our area, there are many homes that were built with crawl spaces and not basements. For a long time, these were created with vents which was intended to increase fresh air flow into the area and keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is usually what happens. The vents allow water to enter the space during rain and snow storms and then it never leaves which results in the humidity level staying too high which will eventually harbor the growth of mold and mildew. Up to ½ of the air in your home has come up through the crawl space so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been dealing with crawl spaces since 1979 and we know the most efficient way to seal them off and control excess humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a thick liner or vapor barrier, sometimes accompanied by insulation products, which are sturdy plastic and vinyl sheeting as well as vent covers and a heavy duty door that will close off the area completely and prevent any excess moisture from entering. Encapsulation will also prevent rodents and animals from settling in your crawl space which will keep any items there safe and allow you to use it for storage. After your crawl space is protected, we will install an air filter and dehumidifier to improve the indoor air quality. 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 add features to the basement and crawl space areas of your home. We can upgrade, replace, or install new basement windows to increase the air flow or provide additional light in the area. When waterproofing the basement, we can install a wall system that is both 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 prevent any water from entering the home before it can become a problem. 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.
