Basement & Water Problems That Need Repair
When you have water in your basement during rainy weather, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our team of experts is here to help you set up the correct 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. This is common for backed-up floor drains, failed sump pumps, or broken waterproofing systems that were not installed or performing correctly. Other cases may be caused by standard leaks that have built up overtime causing a flood with no where 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 That Need Repair
There are a handful of normal problems that affect homeowners in the Oil City area. If you recognize any of these issues, it is very important that you contact an expert to valuate your home. Our team is here to help you repair your home.
Buckling Basement 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. 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
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. 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.
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
