Basement Services for Oswego, IL
Oswego has a very interesting history in Chicagoland, thanks to its connection with muscle car races that took place for the better part of 20 years. You may have even gone to some of the different celebrations that take place throughout the year. While the drag racing history is all about speed, foundation problems do not occur quickly with your home. These are problems that develop slowly over time, but eventually, foundation problems can become extremely serious with the structural integrity of your home. That is exactly why you need to do everything in your power to protect your foundation and repair it as quickly as possible, with the help of Reliable Basement Service, you’ll have this ability.
Have you noticed wet spots along the walls of your basement? Perhaps it even smells a bit musty whenever you go downstairs. This means there is moisture coming in from the outside. It also means you need to do something about it. Not only does it call into question the structural integrity of the foundation, but it also may lead to the development of mold, which becomes a health hazard.
What is the best course of action for waterproofing your home? It depends on your situation. An exterior waterproofing membrane might be the best way to go about this as it does provide an additional protective layer against moisture. If water leaks in through the windows, a drainage system installed into the window wells is helpful, and even egress window installation might be the best way to go.
French drains, installed both on the inside and outside of your home, can help control water flow as well.
Of course, one of the best ways to protect your home’s foundation is to prevent extended moisture from coming in contact with the property. This is done through the aid of sump pumps. Sump pumps extract water from the soil and pump it to a different location. Battery back up systems are helpful if you are in a high risk area.
From crack repairs to more extreme methods, there are ways to correct your foundation issues. If the foundation has already started to shift, wall bracing and foundation underpinning are two options you may need to consider.
