Important Basement Issues We Can Repair
If you have water in your basement after it rains, then you know how critical the problems can be. Our team of experts is here to help you set up the perfect waterproofing plan to ensure your home is safe during the rain.
Basement flooding is caused by failed systems in most cases or severe leaks that have become more rapid in progression. This is common for backed-up floor drains, failed sump pumps, or broken waterproofing systems that were not installed or performing correctly. 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.
Cracks are the most common symptoms of wet basements that cause leaks and seepage to 'creep' from different areas. Leaks can range from slow to steady having adverse effects on your concrete, walls, and floors. Over time the amount of water can become more severe creating more problems for your basement- including structural damages.

Bowed 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.
Cracks in your basement are unsightly and can cause a lot of problems. Most often, this problem is caused from concrete shrinkage in the foundation or from a rising and falling water table outside your home. When it comes to repairing this issue, we can make use of a urethane injection technique that will seal it off and stop water from getting into your home.
