Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home whethyer or not 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 dry and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are a number of areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water out of your home. The most likely place where we find basement leaking is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete walls or mortar joints. 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 collect and expell water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in 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 systems you need to keep your home safe.
Your Homes 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 foundtion problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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've noticed 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 Easton area, there are 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 designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, 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. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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 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 achieved 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 saggign floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
