Basement Waterproofing

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 necessary that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are several areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your home. 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 solutions that will 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 stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in 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.

Professional Foundation Repair

Your Homes 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 foundation problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Often Times, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. We can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad the damage 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 notice 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 neededsupport.

Crawl Space Repair

In the Mayo area, there are 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 created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don’t really work that way, 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. 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.

Our team 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 achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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. 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.
