Basement Problems That Need Repair
When you have water in your home during rainy weather, then you know how critical the problems can be. Our professionals are here to help you find the perfect waterproofing system to ensure your home is safe 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. Other cases may be caused by standard leaks that have built up overtime causing a flood with no where 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.

Bowing Foundation 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.
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. When it comes to repairing this issue, we can make use of a urethane injection technique that will seal it off and stop water from getting into your home.
