If you've seen water in the basement following a heavy storm, it is not good. If this water is present, it can prevent you from being able to keep items in the basement and even keep you from being able to fully use the space. Excess moisture and humidity can also harbor mold and mildew which can eventually lead to health problems. If you have standing water in the basement, you should contact us so a member of our team can evaluate the leaking and help create a basement waterproofing system which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary problems from occurring. This system can also stop the growth of mold and help so you can be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a minor issue that can very quickly become very serious. Your basement walls job 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 keeps happening, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in a very expensive replacement or rebuilding of the basement wall in that location. In some of the worst cases, the house could collapse. To repair bowing foundation walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the bowing wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. The anchors can be professionally installed quickly and can correct the bowed basement wall once installed. Once the wall has been repaired, the chances of it bowing more are almost none.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go to when there is a noticeable problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to prevent issues in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and restore the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent mold growth.
