Professional 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 imperative 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 repair systems to help keep the water out of your basement. The primary place where we find water leaks 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 solutions that will remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the first things our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom 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 and safe.
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Sometimes, you will see that the doors 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 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 common issues and our team is very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution customized 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 bring the home back to level. 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Easton area, there are homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, 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. If you have a crawl space, 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 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 close them off and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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. 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.
