Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

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 important that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are several areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer several different waterproofing solutions to help keep the water under control. The most likely place where we find basement leaking 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 collect, transport, and 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 control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized 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 safe.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

Your Homes foundation 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 got foundation issues, they will normally 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 notice that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see 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.

Thankfully, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sloping 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 have got 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 Clinton area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these 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. If you have a crawl space, 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 providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
