If you have stagnant water in your basement after a heavy storm, it is not good. When this water stays around, 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 could in the future lead to health problems. If you've got standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can investigate the leaking and help implement a basement waterproofing solution which can prevent water coming in and prevent any additional damage from occurring. This can prevent the growth of mold and enable you to finally be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling foundation walls are a minor issue that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is to both keep the soil out and hold up the home above. When the basement walls are bowing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem keeps getting worse, 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 area. In some of the worst cases, the building could collapse. To repair buckling basement walls, we uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from buckling any more. The anchors can be expertly installed quickly and can correct the bowed basement wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more 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 probably because they are usually poorly sealed and are regularly unkempt, dangerous, and can even have critters holed up in them. They are notorious for having moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control issues in this area is to encapsulate them and close them off from the outside. This will control excess moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the extra humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of window or door frames, this is an indicator that there are problems with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when closing them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Palmer area due to the moisture levels of the soil go up and down during the year. The problems are occasionally caused by poor soil compaction while the home was being built. Our experts can install a network 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.
