Important Basement Issues That We Fix
If you have water in your basement after it rains, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our experienced team is here to help you set up the perfect waterproofing system to ensure your home is protected during the rain.
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. 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
If you have a leaky basement the most common problem comes from cracks or openings throughout the basement causing seepage. 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.

Foundation Problems That Need Repair
There is a list of normal problems that affect homeowners in the Oil City area. If you notice 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 prevent future damage to your home.
Bowed Foundation Walls
This is a common problem that is caused from hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. Whenever the soil around your home swells up from moisture, it will put a lot of pressure on the walls on the base of your home. Eventually, the wall(s) will be pushed into your home. 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. Most often, this problem is caused from concrete shrinkage in the foundation or from a rising and falling water table outside your home. 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 Structural Solutions and 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
