Basement Waterproofing

If there is stagnant water in your basement following a big rain, this is never good.

Bowed Wall Repair

Bowing basement 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 foundation walls are buckling into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem continues to get worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and may even require a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be installed in a day and can correct the bowed foundation wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bucking are almost none.

Crawl Spaces

If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are usually improperly sealed off and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them 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 them and restore the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
