If you've seen water in the basement following a heavy rainfall, it is not good. When this water is not removed, it will keep you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even prevent you from turning that space into another room. Excess water and humidity can also cause the growth of mildew and mold which can in the future lead to dangerous health problems. If you're noticing standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can determine the cause of the flooding and help create a basement waterproofing solution which will control water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This will also control the growth of mold and make it so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an extra bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing foundation walls are a problem 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 pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the problem keeps getting worse, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the basement wall in that area. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct buckling basement walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and prevent it from buckling any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowing wall once installed. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are almost none.
If your homes got a crawl space, it is likely an area that you will only visit when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are normally improperly sealed off and are regularly messy, dirty, and can even have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as 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 sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you have cracks in the foundation or if you've noticed them at the corners of window or doors, this is a sign that there is a problem with the foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Hastings area as a result of the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. They are occasionally caused by improper compaction while the home was being built. Our experts can install a piering system under your home which will shift the load of your home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
