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 free of water and excess humidity. There are several areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer several different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your home. The primary place where we find water leaks 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 products that will collect and expell water from your basement. If you have foundaiton cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in 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.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is most likely 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 got foundtion problems, 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. Other times, you will notice that the doors or windows 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 see them, however, they are all indicative 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 issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. 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 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 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 much 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 they were created with crawl space 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 crawl space vents allows water to get in during rain and snow storms. 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 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 encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best 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 saggign floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
