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 experienced team is here to help you find the ideal waterproofing system 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.
Wet Basements & Leaks
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.

Common Foundation Problems That We Solve
There are a handful of usual problems that affect homeowners in the Punxsutawney area. If you recognize any of these issues, it is crucial that you contact an expert to valuate your home. Our experts are here to help you and your family repair your home.
Bowing Foundation 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. 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.
Foundation & Wall Cracks
Cracks in your basement are unsightly and can cause a lot of problems. 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 Patented Products and Foundation Repair Systems
SafeBase™ Wall Anchors
