Foundation Repair Problem Signs

Foundation leaks can cause serious damage to your home, so it is important to be aware of the signs of a potential leak. Common signs of a foundation leak include brown, green, or black stains on carpets, pooling water around your home, doors, and windows that are no longer properly aligned, warm spots on the floor, running water sound when no appliances are in use, cracks in the floor, tiles, bricks, or moldings, rotated, bowed, or separated walls, uneven or warped floors, and doors or windows that won’t close or have separated from the house. Additionally, an unexplained increase in your utility bill could be a sign of a leaking foundation, as well as damp floors. [1]

Foundation Repair Solutions

Our team will look at the total picture and try to figure out why you are experiencing water in your basement. There are several reasons for this, and we have several solutions to help overcome these problems. Some of the most common ways we can help with foundation repair are:

 

I-Beam Installation

I-beam installation involves the insertion of steel beams into a home’s foundation, providing additional support and stability to prevent structural issues and foundation damage. This process is commonly used in homes with foundation problems or for preventative measures in areas with expansive soil or high water tables.

Exterior Waterproofing

Exterior waterproofing is the process of sealing a home’s foundation from the outside to prevent water infiltration and damage This involves excavating the perimeter of the home, applying a waterproof membrane, installing drainage systems, and backfilling with gravel to allow for proper water drainage.

EXTERIOR DRAINAGE

Exterior drainage installation involves the installation of a system to manage water runoff from a home’s exterior. This can include the installation of French drains, catch basins, and downspout extensions to prevent water from pooling around the foundation and causing damage.

VAPOR BARRIER

Vapor barrier installation is the process of installing a layer of material designed to prevent moisture from penetrating the walls, ceiling, or floor of a building. This is typically done in areas with high humidity or where condensation is likely to occur, such as basements, crawl spaces, and attics.

“We are very pleased with the work that your crew did. They did an excellent job in cementing back the floor that was opened for the drainage pits.

After the job was completed, we had 3 other contractors (carpet, carpenter, and plumber) come into our basement and they all remarked that they had never before witnessed a job as well done as the one done by your company

Thank you very much for your work and the cleanup that occurred after the job was done. “

“The resulting repair results have been truly outstanding. Your men performed mold remediation and structural repair in an outstanding and professional manner to correct and resolve the water leakage problem in my basement.

In my view, they worked untiringly and were exact in everything accomplished in the job as well as cleaning up after the area after the job was completed.

Thank you for your dedicated work. I will be highly recommending your business to all my clients and friends.”

Donald Gauntner

“I have dealt with asthma and allergy symptoms for 30 years. I called David Horner, the owner of Basement Waterproofing Solutions, and told him what had been transpiring. He said he could be at my house in 30 minutes to give me an estimate.

He went over the basement and explained what he would do so that I could end up with a new, dry basement. I was never pressured to sign a contract or give money.

During the renovations, they took care of every concern I had, and they even went above and beyond and fixed some old cement they thought would trip me up. 

I no longer have to take asthma medicine or inhalers, my cough is gone, and I am enjoying my bright, clean, and dry basement.”
