When you've got stagnant water in your basement after a heavy storm, this is not good. When this water stays around, it will prevent you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even prevent you from using that space as another room.

This will also control the growth of mold and also help so you can have the ability to turn the basement into viable storage space, an extra room, or even an additional bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement or foundation walls are a minor problem that can quickly become very serious. Your basement walls job is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are bowing into the basement, this is a sign that they may not be able to support the building much more. If the buckling continues to increase, it is possible the walls could collapse and result in you to rebuild or replace the foundation wall in that location. The worst case scenario is the building could collapse. To repair bowing basement walls, our experts uses a system of specially designed wall anchors to straighten the wall back into place and prevent it from bowing any more. These anchors can be installed in a day and can straighten the bowing wall the same day. After the wall has been straightened, the chances of it bowing more are very low.
If your home has a crawl space, it is most likely a part of the home that you will only go to when there is a problem. This is because they are generally improperly sealed and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess humidity problems that can cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent 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 preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and restore the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in your foundation or if you've seen them at the corners of the window or doors, this is a sign that there is a problem with your foundation and you may require foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows are difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Foundation problems are fairly common in the Harrisburg area as a result of the moisture content of the soil fluctuates throughout the year. They are sometimes caused by improper soil compaction during the building of your home. Our experts can install a piering system under your home which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
