Professional 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 important that you keep the area free of flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a number of different repair products to help keep the water under control. The main place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the mortar joints between blocks and cracks in your concrete wall. 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 transport and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to stop 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 dr0 and safe.

Professional Foundation Repair

Your Homes foundation is most likely 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 problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Sometimes, you will see that the doors or windows 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 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 problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. 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’ve noticed 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.

Professional Crawl Space Solutions

In the Wittman area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these crawl space 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 and mildew. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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 close them off and control mold. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
