Professional 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 imperative that you keep the area dry. There are several areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water out of your basement. The most likely place where we find basement leaking is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete or at mortar joints between blocks. 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 products that will transport and remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom waterproofing 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 systems you need to keep your home dry.
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important areas of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will see that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad it 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 have got 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.
Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Brentwood area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were intended help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these crawl space 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 the growth of mold and mildew. 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 team has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control mold. 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
