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. There are a number of areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing products to help keep the water out of your basement. The main 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 solutions that will transport and 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 control 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 dr0 and safe.
Your Homes 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 foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement 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 bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe 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.
Often Times, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad the damage 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 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 much neededsupport.
In the Royal Oak area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these crawl space 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. 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 encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is best 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. 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.
