If there is stagnant water in the basement after a big rainfall, this is never good. If this water is not controlled, it can keep you from being able to keep items in the area and even stop you from being able to fully use the space. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually cause the growth of mildew and mold which can be responsible for dangerous health problems. If you've got standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the leaking and help design a basement waterproofing system which can prevent water coming in and prevent any additional problems from occurring. This system can prevent the growth of mold and also help so you can have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, an extra room, or even a spare bedroom.
BOWED WALL REPAIR
Bowing foundation walls are a minor issue that can very quickly get very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation wall in that area. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a location that you only go to when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally poorly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
FOUNDATION SETTLEMENT REPAIR
If you've noticed cracking in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of the window frames or doors, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Corning area as the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. They are also caused by improper compaction while the home was being built. Our experts can install a piering system under your house which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and stop the house from sinking or settling in the future.
