It is very important that as soon as you see a problem with the basement, foundation, or crawl space that you contact an experienced repair company. We say this because there are a number of additional issues that can accompany these issues including mold, weakened structure, and even permanent foundation damage.

If you have water in your basement after a big storm, it is never good. When this water is not controlled, it can prevent you from being able to keep items in the basement and even keep you from turning that space into another room. Excess moisture and humidity can also harbor mold and mildew which could eventually be a cause of life threatening health problems. If you have standing water in the basement, you should reach out to us so a member of our team can determine the cause of the issue and help design a basement waterproofing solution which can control water coming in and prevent any additional damage from happening. This can control the growth of mold and also help so you can have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Bowing basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can 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 inward, this is an indicator that they may not be able to do their job for much longer. If the buckling keeps getting worse, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To correct bowed foundation walls, we uses a system of wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. These anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can straighten the bowed wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is probably a location that you only visit when there is a problem. This is probably because they are generally poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. They are known for having moisture issues that could cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to control issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If your floors above the crawl space are sagging, we can install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you're seeing cracks in your foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of your window frames or doorways, this is a sign that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even sticking when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Linwood area due to the moisture levels of the soil rise and fall during the year. These issues are sometimes caused by poor compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your home which will shift the load of the home to the piers and keep the home from sinking or settling in the future.
