Basement & Water Problems That Need Repair
When you have water in your basement after it rains, then you know how critical the problems can be. Our team of experts is here to help you find the correct 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. 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
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. Over time the amount of water can become more severe creating more problems for your basement- including structural damages.

Important Foundation Issues That We Fix
There are a handful of usual problems that affect homeowners in the Punxsutawney area. If you have seen any of these issues, it is crucial that you contact an expert to be sure your home is safe. Our experts are here to help you and your family prevent future damage to your home.
Buckling 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. 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.
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.
How We Provide Foundation Repair
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
