Important Basement Issues We Can Repair
When you have water in your basement after it rains, then you know how critical the problems can be. Our professionals are here to help you set up the correct waterproofing system to ensure your home is safe during the rain.
Floods in Your Basement
Basement flooding is caused by failed systems in most cases or severe leaks that have become more rapid in progression. 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. Other cases may be caused by standard leaks that have built up overtime causing a flood with no where to be drained.
Wet Basements & Leaks
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.

Common Foundation Problems We Repair
There is a list of usual problems that affect homeowners in the Knox area. If you recognize any of these issues, it is very important that you contact an expert to be sure your home is safe. Our team is here to help you prevent future damage to your home.
Buckling Foundation Walls
Often times, leaning basement walls are caused from hydrostatic pressure. 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. Eventually, the wall(s) will be pushed into your home. We can install durable wall anchors that are much better than traditional anchors on the market today.
Foundation & Wall Cracks
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.
Our Patented Products and Foundation Repair Systems
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
Liquid Urethane Injection
