Basement & Water Problems We Can Repair
When you have water in your basement after it rains, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our professionals are here to help you set up the perfect waterproofing plan to ensure your home is dry during the rain.
Primarily due to a very serious opening or drainage problem, flooded basements can be a serious hazard. 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. 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. This is a dangerous issue for your home as leaks persist and continue to flow. 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 is a list of usual problems that affect homeowners in the Punxsutawney area. If you have seen any of these issues, it is very important that you contact an expert before the problems get worse. Our team is here to help you prevent future damage to your home.
Bowed Basement Walls
Often times, leaning basement walls are caused from hydrostatic pressure. 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. 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.
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
Liquid Urethane Injection
When performing any foundation repair we finish off the project by injecting liquid urethane to permanently seal these openings from potential future water leaks that will cause additional problems.Learn More
