If there is water in your basement after a large rainfall, it is never good. If this water is present, it will prevent you from being able to store items in the basement and even prevent you from fully using the area. Excess moisture and humidity can ultimately harbor mold and mildew which can eventually be a cause of health problems. If you’ve seen standing water in the basement, you should get in touch with us so a member of our team can investigate the flooding and help design a basement waterproofing system which will control water coming in and prevent any additional problems from happening. This will control the growth of mold as well as enable you to have the ability to turn the basement into usable storage space, an extra room, or even an extra bedroom.
If you’ve seen cracking in your foundation or if you’ve noticed them at the corners of the window or doorways, this is a sign that there is a problem with your foundation and you are in need of foundation repair. An additional sign could be your doors or windows will be difficult to open or close or even not moving when opening them. Sinking foundations are commonplace in the Newport area due to the moisture levels of the soil fluctuates during the year. The problems are occasionally caused by poor compaction when your home was being built. Our team can install a network of piers under your house that will shift the weight of the home to the piers and prevent the house from sinking or settling in the future.
If you’ve got a crawl space, it is probably a part of the home that you only go into when there is a problem. This is due to the fact that they are usually poorly sealed and are frequently messy, grimy, and can have critters holed up in them. They are known for having excess humidity issues that can cause problems with the floor joists and even cause mold to grow. Our team knows one of the best ways to control problems in crawl spaces is to install an encapsulation system and close them off from the outside. This will control unnecessary moisture and humidity in addition to preventing unwanted pests from getting in. If you have sloping floors above the crawl space, we will install a series of jacks to lift and stabilize the floor joists and level the sagging floor. To further prevent extra moisture, we will install a specialized crawl space dehumidifier to remove the excess humidity and prevent mold growth.
