If there is water in the basement after a big storm, this is never good. When this water is not controlled, it can prevent you from being able to keep items in the area and even keep you from being able to fully use the space. Excess water and humidity will eventually cause mold and mildew to grow which can be responsible for dangerous health problems. If you have standing water in your basement, you should contact us so one of our experts can investigate the leaking and help create a basement waterproofing system which can prevent water coming in and prevent unnecessary damage from happening. This can also control the growth of mold and help so you can finally be able to turn the basement into viable storage space, a media room, or even an additional bedroom.
If there are cracking in the foundation or if you’re noticing them at the corners of window or door frames, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even sticking when closing them. Settling foundations are fairly common in the Belleville area as the moisture content of the soil rise and fall throughout the year. They are sometimes caused by inadequate compaction while the home was being built. Our experts can install a network of piers under your home which will shift the weight of the home to the piers and keep the home from sinking or settling in the future.
If your home has a crawl space, it is likely an area that you only go to when there is a problem. This is because they are normally poorly sealed off and are regularly unkempt, grimy, and can even have critters inhabiting them. They are notorious for having humidity problems that can cause damage to the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in this area is to encapsulate them and seal them off from the weather. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you’ve got sagging floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
