If you have standing water in your basement after a large storm, it is not good. If this water stays around, it will prevent you from having the ability to store items in the area and even stop you from turning that space into another room.

If you have cracks in your foundation or if you’ve seen them at the corners of your windows or doorways, this is one of the signs that there are problems with your foundation and you may be in need of foundation repair. Another sign could be your doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Foundation problems are commonplace in the Hamburg area due to the moisture content of the soil fluctuates during the year. These issues are occasionally caused by improper compaction when your home was being built. Our professionals can install a system of piers under your home which will shift the load of the home to the piers and stop the home from sinking or settling in the future.
If your home has a crawl space, it is probably an area that you only worry about when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, grimy, and can have critters living in them. They are known for having excess moisture issues that could cause problems with the floor joists and even enable mold to grow. Our team knows an ideal way to prevent problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the exterior. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity as well as preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a system of jacks to lift and stabilize them and level the sagging floor. To further control excess moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
