Crawl Space Repairs
If you have a crawl space in your home it likely is a window into what else is going on with the foundation. This is because it doesn’t have paint or other cosmetic cover ups that might prevent you from seeing what’s going on. So, if you have noticed cracks within the walls of your crawl space, if it seems damp or if it smells like mildew it is important for you to have it looked into and inspected right away. There’s a chance you have a much bigger problem going on.
Yard Drainage Servicing
A major reason why you might have foundation problems is because you have yard drainage problems. When moisture is constantly present around your home it can lead to the erosion of soil around the property. But what can you do do control how moisture moves on your property? Some landscaping solutions might be an option. Additionally, the installation of sump pumps will remove water from the nearby soil and pump it to a different location. If you are in a high risk area, battery back up systems for your sump pump are desirable as well.
Repairing the cracks in your foundation with cement crack repair will prevent further damage. If you have sustained some foundation damage, wall bracing and foundation underpinning are viable options.
