Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

Your basement is an important area in your home regardless of whether you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is necessary that you keep the area free of flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions to help keep the water out of your home. The most likely 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.

Regardless of the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak.

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 safe.

Structural Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

The foundation of your home is possibly 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 foundation issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. 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.

Often Times, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad the damage is and where it is 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 buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.

Crawl Space Repair

In the Brandywine area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were designed 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 rain and snow storms. 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.

Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof line, sometimes accompanied by a sump pump 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. Moisture in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
