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 imperative that you keep the area dry. There are several areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your basement. The primary 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.
Whatever the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the first things our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak.

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 products you need to keep your home safe.
Structural Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home 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 issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, 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 issues are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution designed 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 level the foundation. Depending on how bad it 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've noticed 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 much neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Brentwood area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with open 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 open vents allows water to get in during storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. 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 Experts has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high 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 saggign floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
