If there is stagnant water in your basement after a heavy rain, this is not good.

This system can stop the growth of mold and also help so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement walls are a minor issue that can very quickly become 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 into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the problem continues to increase, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the foundation in that location. The worst case scenario is the home above could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to pull the bowing wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. These anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can straighten the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is due to the fact that they are generally improperly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having humidity problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to 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 the floor joists and correct the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we can install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracking in your foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of your window or door frames, this is one of the signs that there are problems with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when opening them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Blue Hill area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year. These issues are also caused by poor soil compaction when your home was being built. Our experts can install a piering system under your house which will shift the load of the home to the piers and stop the house from sinking or settling in the future.
