Basement & Water Problems We Can Repair
If you have water in your home after it rains, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our team of experts is here to help you set up the ideal waterproofing system to ensure your home is protected 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.
Basement Leaks & Cracks
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. 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.

Important Foundation Issues That We Solve
There is a list of usual problems that affect homeowners in the Knox area. If you have noticed any of these issues, it is very important that you contact an expert before the problems get worse. Our experts are here to help you 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. We can install durable wall anchors that are much better than traditional anchors on the market today.
Foundation & Wall Cracks
Cracks in your basement are unsightly and can cause a lot of problems. 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
Liquid Urethane Injection
