Some of the foundation problems that you might see in your home have to do with an excessive amount of water in the ground around your home. This water can cause a buildup of hydrostatic pressure in the ground, pushing on the foundation and the basement walls. It can also erode soil, leading to foundation settlement. Foundation problems like this often show certain symptoms throughout the home, such as:
These are only a few of the structural problems that result from a foundation issue. To fix these problems, Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services uses foundation underpinning and repair devices from ECP (Earth Contact Products), the leading supplier in the industry. These products include helical piers and steel push piers to support sinking foundations, and various anchors – wall anchors, helical tiebacks, plate anchors – for bowing foundation walls.
Keeping your basement free of moisture is also important to the health of your home. If you notice puddles or leaks in your basement, it may be time to invest in a basement waterproofing drainage system from Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services. If your home is experiencing foundation problems due to water pushing on the foundation walls, it is likely that some of that water could seep through the walls and enter the basement. This can lead to a damp, humid basement; mold growth; rust and rotting wood; bacteria and dust mites; and even pooling water or flooding.
Fortunately, the waterproofing experts at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services can take care of basement moisture to prevent these annoyances from occurring. The first way to do this is with an exterior waterproofing system. This system will make sure that water does not pool around the foundation and make its way through the concrete into the basement. Interior waterproofing systems can help to redistribute water that has started to collect in the basement. Once the water is collected by the drain channels and pipe systems, it is dumped into the sump basin (also known as the sump pit) which stores the water. The sump pump then pumps stored water out of the home. With all of these systems working together, your home is sure to be a much drier and healthier place.
Another service that we offer is dehumidification. The main product for this service is a Santa Fe Dehumidifier, which can be installed in your basement to remove extra moisture from the air and prevent sticky walls and mold growth. If you have a damp or humid crawlspace, the best solution may be to install a vapor barrier to seal moisture out of the area.
