If you do find you are in need of foundation repairs, the exact process may vary a bit. Sometimes it’s nothing more than a crack as cracks can look far more devastating than they really are. At other times, even a subtle hairline crack may cause structural damage throughout the house. Due to this, crack repairs in the cement foundation is a must, as this not only strengthens the foundation but it prevents moisture from entering your house. In more serious situations where the foundation has started to shift, foundation underpinning and wall bracing may be a requirement. It just depends on what your property is in need of.
Have you found wet patches in your basement? Perhaps you just want to remain proactive and protect your basement from possible flooding. In that case, you do have options. An exterior waterproofing membrane is an excellent method for protecting your property. You may also need new interior tiling and drainage systems installed, new battery back up systems put into place or egress windows installed in your basement.
Draining water properly is so important. Water may seem harmless, but overtime it will dramatically affect your home, it’s foundation and the basement itself. Due to this, you need to do what you can to control the flow of water around your property. Sump pumps can help remove water from the soil and pump it out elsewhere. You also need to take care of the gutters around the house so water doesn’t pool up in certain areas around the property. Outside additions like window well drainage systems and exterior drain tiling can all go a long way in proper yard drainage, which not only improves the property value but also reduces potential basement flooding and foundation issues.
