Your basement is an important area in your home whether 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 a variety of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing solutions to help keep the water under control. The most likely 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.
Whatever the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will remove water from your basement. If you have foundation 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 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 solutions you need to keep your home dr0 and safe.
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation 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. Other times, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize 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 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 have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
In the Lothian area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were intended 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 heavy rain. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. If you have a crawl space, 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 Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best 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 heavy duty 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. 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.
