Professional 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 dry and free from flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different repair solutions and products to help keep the water out of your home. 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 waterproofing systems that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, the first thing 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 custom 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 safe.

Structural Foundation Repair

The foundation of your home is possibly 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 foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to bow inward. 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 one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Luckily, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair 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 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.

Professional Crawl Space Repair

In the Sherwood area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they 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, the opposite is what usually 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 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 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 most efficient 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 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
