Though foundation repair often centers around filling foundation cracks, it can also include filling in or reinforcing other weak spots in the masonry (perhaps with the installation of heavy-gauge metal plates or braces). It may also involve remedying underlying structural problems, like sagging girders, damaged piers or posts, or continued settling of the foundation.
A cracked foundation can lead to major problems, including more cracks, larger cracks, a dangerous redistribution of weight in your home’s framing, water, excess moisture, pests, and difficulty selling your home.
Small basement leaks can turn into large problems down the road. The longer you put off a repair the more damage that is caused to your foundation. Wet basements create all kinds of problems. With cracked or leaky basement walls the sooner you address the problem the better. Damage caused by cracked foundations not only reduce the value of your home, but also can affect mortgage renewals, your ability to resell your home, and can seriously affect your family’s health because of mould and mildew.
Parge coatings are used to cover exterior walls – most often foundations – made of brick or concrete. It is essentially a thin layer of mortar that is applied to walls to enhance the appearance of unattractive block walls or bare concrete.
Window wells function as miniature retaining walls that keep soil away from your windows, and that allow maximum light to enter your basement.
Many homeowners and business owners aren’t sure exactly what the sump pump does. In short, it’s a vital piece of equipment to keep rising water levels from flooding your basement. That is especially true if your property has poor drainage, and it’s especially important to make sure your sump is in good working condition before winter sets in.
If your foundation is improperly constructed, the integrity of your home or addition will be compromised. A well-built foundation helps prevent shifting and settling, resists soil changes due to varying climate conditions, maintains property value, and protects the integrity of your home.
Some homes have block wall foundations, which can be damaged and may need repairs, just as with a poured foundation.
We can excavate install, or repair, weeping tile drainage systems, also known as French drains.
Moisture and time can wear out the mortar in a block wall or other masonry work, requiring the old mortar to be removed and new mortar applied.
As with the rest of your basement, a crawl space can allow in excess moisture or suffer structural damage, which require repairs to one extent or another.
