Basement Waterproofing

  •  Polyurethane Injection. ... The method we use is called polyjacking, a high-density polyurethane injection foam, that is injected into a small 5/8” hole drilled through the affected concrete. This high-density polyurethane foam expands 20 times its liquid volume as it moves laterally beneath the pavement filling all voids.

Stabilizing Basement Walls with Structural Steel Bracing

  •  Steel I-beams are installed from the inside of the basement. You secure steel beams in place to brace the bowing wall. It is important that this system is also tied into the frame work of the house to make sure it is set in place. This system braces the wall and prevents it from moving any more. It doesn’t straighten the wall back in place. Because these braces are straight steel beams they only will support where the wall is bowing at its worst.

What Causes Hydrostatic Pressure to Have an Impact on Your Home?

The pressure from the water builds underneath basement floors and around the walls, and gravity pushes water into your living space through even the tiniest cracks. That’s why you won’t be able to find one specific entry point for the water.

This moisture can form more cracks and cause foundation walls to bow, so you’ll want to take care of it right away.

The type of soil around your home greatly affects how much it expands and shrinks when it receives moisture. Remember that clay soil will absorb more water than sandy soil, so the more it absorbs, the more built-up pressure is present behind your basement’s walls.

A huge mistake people make is that they let water pool near their home’s foundation. The issue with this is that you can’t keep water outside; foundation walls are typically made of concrete, therefore they’re porous and will absorb this water. Concrete may be strong, but it doesn’t stand a chance to large amounts of water. Unfortunately, current estimates indicate that a home’s foundation issues reduces its value by 10 to 15%.
