It is crucial that as soon as you find a problem with the craw space, basement, or foundation that you reach out to a trusted repair company. We recommend this because there are quite a few potentially dangerous issues that will accompany these issues such as black mold, structural damage, and even catastrophic foundation damage. It doesn't matter if you require our basement waterproofing services to stop water damaging your home, foundation repair products to prevent your home from sinking, or crawl space services to control mold growth in the crawl space, or even our bowed basement wall repair services to fix your bowing basement walls, our experts are here to help you.
If you have water in the basement following a heavy rainfall, it is not good. If this water stays around, it will keep you from being able to store items in the basement and even prevent you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity will eventually cause the growth of mildew and mold which could lead to life threatening 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 evaluate the leaking and help design a basement waterproofing solution which will stop water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from happening. This system will also control the growth of mold and make it so you can finally be able to turn the basement into usable storage space, a media room, or even a spare bedroom.
Bowed Wall Repair
Buckling basement walls are a problem that can very quickly turn into one that is much more serious. The foundations purpose is twofold; support the home and keep soil out of the basement. When the walls are pushing into the basement, this is an indicator that they may be in danger of collapsing. If the buckling keeps happening, it could eventually lead to a failure of the foundation walls and may even require you to rebuild or replace the foundation in that location. In some of the worst cases, the home above could collapse. To fix bowed basement walls, we uses a system of specially engineered wall anchors to bring the problem wall back into place and permanently prevent it from bowing any longer. The anchors can be expertly installed in a day and can correct the bowing wall the same day. Once the wall has been straightened, the probability of it becoming a problem again are very low.
If you've got a crawl space, it is likely a part of the home that you will only worry about when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually improperly sealed and are frequently unkempt, dangerous, and can have critters inhabiting them. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent issues in crawl spaces is to encapsulate them and close them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as controlling the entry of unwanted pests. If you've got sagging floors above the crawl space, we can install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and correct the sinking floor. To further prevent excess moisture, we can install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
Foundation Settlement Repair
If you've noticed cracks in the foundation or if you're seeing them at the corners of window or doors, this is one of the signs that there is a problem with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. Another sign could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when opening them. Settling foundations are commonplace in the Hartford area due to the moisture content of the soil go up and down during the year. They are also caused by inadequate compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a piering system under your home that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the home from sinking or settling in the future.
