Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

Your basement is an important area in your home 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 dry and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are several ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different repair 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 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.

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 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 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 solutions you need to keep your home dry.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Luckily, 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 and stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on the extent of the damage 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.

Crawl Space Repair

In the Easton area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with 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 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. Up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will increase the overall air quality in your home.

Our team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
