Common Waterproofing Problems We Can Solve
If you have water in your home during rainy weather, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our team of experts is here to help you find the perfect waterproofing plan to ensure your home is protected during the rain.
Floods in Your Basement
Primarily due to a very serious opening or drainage problem, flooded basements can be a serious hazard. The most common cases derive from basement floor drains that have become clogged or over-worked, sump pumps that are broken or cannot drain enough water, or lack of a waterproofing system to help carry the load. If these other symptoms are not the case, this can be caused by normal seepage issues that build up water for long periods of time without a place to be drained.
If you have a leaky basement the most common problem comes from cracks or openings throughout the basement causing seepage. Leaks can range from slow to steady having adverse effects on your concrete, walls, and floors. Once your basement begins to leak, the opening can wear down over time becoming larger and letting more water inside. This can eventually turn into a structural problem if it hasn't already.

Unique Foundation & Structural Issues We Repair
There are a handful of usual problems that affect homeowners in the Franklin area. If you notice any of these issues, it is crucial that you contact an expert to be sure your home is safe. Our experts are here to help you prevent future damage to your home.
Bowing Foundation Walls
This is a common problem that is caused from hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. Clay-rich soil will absorb a lot of moisture when it rains, and this causes it to expand and put pressure on your basement walls. It will eventually push them inside, but this foundation problem can be fixed easily. To fix the problem, we can install wall anchors to provide enough lateral pressure to push your wall back to where it needs to be.
Nobody wants to deal with cracks in the basement, but you have to get them taken care of before they start to let water seep inside. Typically, these openings in the floors and walls are caused from concrete shrinkage, or from hydrostatic pressure being exerted from the soil on your foundation. To fix the problem, we make use of a urethane injection technique that will fill the cracks from the soil to the surface so that they won't ever be able to let water inside.
System and Products We Use to Repair Foundations
SafeBase™ Wall Anchors
We use wall plates and steel rods that are installed outside and inside of the basement wall to pull the bowed concrete back in place. This is a permanent solution that will withstand any amount of pressure.Learn More
