Your basement is an important area in your home if you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is imperative that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are a variety of ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing products to help keep the water out of your home. The main place where we find water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the mortar joints between blocks and cracks in your concrete wall. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Whatever the issue you are having we have products that will transport and remove water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized drainage system to help remove the water. In some more extreme cases, we may recommend installing a sump pump system to help with the removal of water. Our experts have the basement waterproofing products you need to keep your home dry and safe.
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important support structures of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Team can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on the extent of the damage and the location of the damage we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you notice bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Barclay area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these open vents allows water to get in during heavy rain. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. Up to half of the air entering your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will benefit the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Water in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
