Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

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 waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your home. The primary place where we find basement leaking 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.

Regardless of the issue you are having we have products that will transport and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized 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 dry and safe.

Structural Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

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 foundtion issues, normally they will 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 notice 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.

Luckly, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Team can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. 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 notice 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 much neededsupport.

Crawl Space Solutions

Crawl Space Repair

In the Church Hill area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with 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 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 the growth of mold. 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 encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control mold. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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.
