Basement Problems That We Fix
If you have water in your home during rainy weather, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our professionals are here to help you find the ideal waterproofing system to ensure your home is dry 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. 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.
Wet Basements & Leaks
Cracks are the most common symptoms of wet basements that cause leaks and seepage to 'creep' from different areas. This is a dangerous issue for your home as leaks persist and continue to flow. Over time the amount of water can become more severe creating more problems for your basement- including structural damages.

Unique Foundation & Structural Issues We Repair
There is a list of normal problems that affect homeowners in the Knox area. If you have seen any of these issues, it is crucial that you contact an expert to valuate your home. Our team is here to help you and your family repair your home.
Bowing Basement 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.
Wall & Concrete 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.
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
