Important Basement Issues We Can Solve
When you have water in your home during rainy weather, then you know how critical the problems can be. Our experienced team is here to help you set up the perfect waterproofing system to ensure your home is safe during the rain.
Floods in Your Basement
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. 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 Fix
There is a list of normal problems that affect homeowners in the Punxsutawney area. If you recognize any of these issues, it is very important that you contact an expert before the problems get worse. Our professionals are here to help you and your family repair your home.
Bowed 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. 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. 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
