BASEMENT WATERPROOFING

If you have standing water in the basement following a big rainfall, it is not good. If this water is present, it will prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the area and even stop you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity will eventually cause the growth of mildew and mold which can ultimately be responsible for life threatening health problems.

BOWED WALL REPAIR

Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor issue that can rapidly get very serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the basement walls are pushing inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling continues to increase, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct buckling basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it bucking are very low.

CRAWL SPACES

If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you will only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having excess humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know one of the best ways to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
