If there is water in your basement following a heavy rainfall, it is never good. If this water stays around, it will keep you from being able to store items in the basement and even prevent you from turning that space into another room. Excess water and humidity also has the ability cause mold and mildew to grow which could eventually be a cause of dangerous health problems. If you've got standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so a member of our team can look into the problem and help create a basement waterproofing system which will control water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from happening. This system will control the growth of mold and make it so you can finally be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a problem that can rapidly become very serious. The purpose of your basement walls is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair buckling foundation walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowed basement wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is most likely an area that you only visit when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are normally improperly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters living in them. They are known for having excess humidity problems that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.

One of the other signs could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when moving them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Skidmore area due to the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall throughout the year.
