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 imperative that you keep the area free of flooding. There are several ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different repair solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The main place where we find basement 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.

Your foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundtion problems, they can 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 see that the windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation.

Depending on how bad it is 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've noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckeling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Repair
In the Stevensville area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were intented help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open 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 and mildew. 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control high humidity. This is best achieved 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
