Did you know the community of Wood Dale was originally called Lester’s Station?

Regardless of how Wood Dale came to be, if you call the community home you need to do what you can and take care of your house. Reliable Basement Service is available for you and your home as the team of experts can inspect your basement, foundation and property, all while giving you peace of mind knowing what any issue might be and how to take care of it.

Foundation Repairs

When you hear the term “foundation repair” you might panic a bit. After all, it sounds like it could become pretty pricey. If you’re proactive, you’ll avoid these expensive costs. This is because crack repairs secure cracks, prevent moisture from coming into the house and restore your foundation.

Now, if the foundation has gone without being serviced or corrected, these issues can expand and become more serious. In these cases, you might need wall bracing or foundation underpinning.

Yard Drainage

Want to know how to avoid foundation repairs? One of the best ways is to control how much moisture comes in contact with the foundation. Sump pumps work wonders, especially if you are in a high risk location for heavy moisture. The sump pumps will pull water out of the soil and push it to another area of the property.

Waterproofing Your Basement

It doesn’t matter if you’ve identified wet spots in your basement or it smells musty, it’s always a good idea to waterproof your basement. How do you do this? It depends on what might cause you problems. One way is to use exterior waterproofing membranes. This will provide your basement with an added layer of protection. Drains in the window wells and on the interior or exterior of the basement will give more water control as well. If you seem to always have water leaking in through windows, egress window installation will give you thicker windows and more protection against this.

Crawl Space

Crawl spaces are great to have for many reasons. The spaces provide storage but also offer a window into other problems with your foundation and basement. Reliable Basement Service will come in and service your crawl space to make sure nothing is the matter with it.

Wood Dale is a beautiful city to call home. Wherever you decide to call home though you do need to make sure it’s well taken care of. This includes caring for your basement and foundation. With the aid of Reliable Basement Service, you’ll always have this kind of assistance.
