Basement Services for Geneva, IL

Geneva is a beautiful suburb of Chicago, full of parks, bike trails and ample opportunities to get outside and enjoy life. While enjoying life, you also need to do what you can to protect your home and make sure it doesn’t succumb to problems others have faced in the past. Foundation issues may not be at the forefront of your mind, but these are situations that can quickly cause major problems with your home. What might appear as a simple crack in the basement may lead to structural problems throughout the rest of the house. Reliable Basement Service is here to make sure your basement and foundation are both well taken care of.

 

Yard Drainage

Yard drainage and water flow is a major issue when it comes to your home’s foundation. Foundation problems occur when the soil shifts around the house, or when moisture is continually present and eventually pushes its way through, into the basement. The best way to avoid moisture coming in contact with your home is to control the very flow of drainage. Reliable Basement Service can give you some ideas and work with you in doing this.

First, it may be as simple as some general landscaping adjustments. If water is continually present around the house, sump pumps will extract the water and pump it elsewhere. Having a battery back up will ensure these systems are always on as well, especially in the case of a power outage.

Around the property, drains in window wells help prevent water from entering the basement, and in more extreme conditions, an exterior waterproofing membrane can go around the foundation as well.

 

Basement Waterproofing

Have you noticed wet spots along the walls of your basement? Perhaps there are cracks in the cement walls? These need to be corrected. Interior and exterior drainage systems can help with this. Egress window installation may also be an option to go with. Of course, crack repairs is a must as well.

 

Foundation Repairs

Crack repairs go a long way in securing current problems. If the foundation has started to shift though, foundation underpinning and wall bracing both help out with these issues.

 

Crawl Space

If there are problems with moisture and the foundation, chances are it will appear in the crawl space. Reliable Basement Service can provide crawl space corrective and restoration services for your Geneva home.
