When you have stagnant water in your basement following a large rain, this is not good. If this water stays around, it can keep you from being able to store items in the area and even stop you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity will eventually cause mold and mildew to grow which can eventually be responsible for health problems. If there is standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can look into the problem and help come up with a basement waterproofing system which can control water coming in and prevent any additional damage from happening. This system can prevent the growth of mold as well as enable you to have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, a second family room, or even a spare bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a minor problem that can quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The purpose of your basement walls is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the foundation walls are buckling inward, this is a sign that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the problem keeps getting worse, it is possible for the walls to fail and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To correct bowed foundation walls, our team uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to pull the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be installed quickly and can straighten the bowed foundation wall once installed. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely a location that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed and are frequently messy, dirty, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are known for having humidity issues that can cause damage to the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the exterior. This will control excess moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If there are cracking in your foundation or if you're noticing them at the corners of the window frames or door frames, this is an indicator that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when moving them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Wellfleet area due to the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. These issues are also caused by poor soil compaction during original construction of the home. Our professionals can install a piering system under your house which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and stop the house from sinking or settling in the future.
