It is very important that if you find a problem with your basement, foundation, or crawl space that you contact a trusted repair company. We recommend this because there are a number of additional problems that can happen along with these issues such as black mold, weakened structure, and even permanent foundation damage. It doesn’t matter if you need our basement waterproofing services to control water entering your home, foundation repair products to prevent your home from sinking, or crawl space services to prevent damage to your floor joists, our professionals are here to help you.
If there is stagnant water in the basement following a big rainfall, this is never good. If this water is present, it can keep you from having the ability to keep items in the basement and even keep you from turning that space into another room. Excess moisture and humidity will eventually cause the growth of mildew and mold which could in the future be responsible for health problems. If there is standing water in your basement, you should get in touch with us so one of our experts can determine the cause of the leaking and help design a basement waterproofing solution which can stop water coming in and prevent any additional problems from happening. This system can stop the growth of mold and also help so you can finally have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an additional bedroom.
If you’ve seen cracks in the foundation or if you’ve seen them at the corners of the windows or doorways, this is a sign that there are problems with the foundation and you may require foundation repair. One of the other signs could be the doors or windows being difficult to open or close or even getting stuck when closing them. Sinking foundations are fairly common in the Ida area as the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. The problems are occasionally caused by improper soil compaction while the home was being built. Our experts can install a network of piers under your house which will shift the weight of your home to the piers and keep the house from sinking or settling in the future.
If you’ve got a crawl space, it is probably an area that you will only go to when there is an obvious problem. This is because they are generally poorly closed off and are frequently unkempt, dirty, and can even have critters holed up in them. Crawl spaces are known for having excess moisture problems that could cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our experts know an ideal way to control problems in this area is to install an encapsulation system and seal them off from the weather. This will control excess 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 them and level the sinking floor. To further control extra moisture, we will install a specialized dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent the growth of mold.
