If you are experiencing moisture or mold in your basement it’s important to act now in order to stop the underlying cause. While water caused by leaking plumbing and sudden bouts of bad weather or flooding rarely causes long term damage (providing that the cause is properly identified and fixed), long term moisture problems can result in serious structural damage. If water is getting into your basement through the walls or floor, there is a good chance that you will require some type of basement waterproofing to be completed. A properly installed system will not only keep the water out but will keep humidity levels lower and you will finally be able to finish the basement and add extra living space.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
If you have a crawl space, it is as important to keep it protected from excess moisture and unwanted pests as any other part of your home. An open crawl space can contribute to excess humidity which can encourage the growth of mold and mildew. With a properly installed crawl space encapsulation system, you can prevent water damage and reduce the health risks commonly associated with high humidity.
Of course, excess moisture isn’t the only thing to look out for when it comes to maintaining your home's basement and foundation. Both new and older homes can settle over time which can lead to shifts in the soil supporting your home. This, in turn, can create stress which can create wall cracks that over time can lead to problems with concrete and brickwork. When you see foundation cracks, they are not always serious but it is important to have an expert evaluate them. Our team is experienced in providing a variety of foundation repair services and if need be, full foundation replacements. the most important thing is to have the foundation inspected by an expert to determine what, if any, repairs need to be implemented.
