Foundation Repairs

Cracks in your cement foundation can appear on both the exterior of the house and in the basement. Crack repair is generally straight forward, as the cracks are filled. This prevents moisture from pushing through the crack, which keeps your basement dry.

In more serious situations, your foundation may suffer from more extreme problems. If the soil around the foundation has started to shift, you may need some corrective measures. Foundation underpinning and wall bracing can help with this. Reliable Basement Service can come in, inspect the basement and cement walls to determine if and what kinds of foundation repairs you are in need of.

 

Yard Drainage

The movement of water around your property is a major reason why your foundation shifts and cracks. It may push soil away from your home, or it may soften areas of the cement over time. Due to this, you need to have moisture directed away from the house.

If water sits and floods the soil, the best way to correct this is by using sump pumps. In more extreme cases, a battery back up gives you additional power, should you ever lose electricity during a flood or other storm.

 

Basement Waterproofing

If you have cracks, inside the basement, crack repairs will fix these issues and help prevent moisture from pushing in. Reliable Basement Service can help you determine if other basement waterproofing is necessary.

Some structural alterations can help with keeping your basement dry. Window well drainage systems allow improved draining out of basement window wells. French drains and other drainage systems installed into your basement and around the property help as well. If your house is in a major problem area for water flow, an exterior waterproofing membrane around the foundation gives you an additional layer of protection. Also, if you may want to consider egress window installation.
