Foundation problems in Indiana, PA occur due to the ever changing weather conditions. The winters are cold and snowy and the summers hot and humid. Spring in Indiana, PA can bring a lot of rain. Because of these weather conditions, your home’s foundation is vulnerable to settlement and damage. When the soil beneath the foundation gets too wet, it will heave and when it becomes too dry, it will shrink. As the soil is constantly shifting, so is the foundation above it. This will cause damage throughout the entire home.
It is important to know some of the signs of foundation problems. Look around your home and look for some of these signs:
If you see any of these signs, it is important to contact a professional to come and inspect your home and foundation. The experts at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services will come and give you a free inspection and offer you the best foundation repair solutions for you.
If we find that your foundation is damaged and is in need of repair and leveling, we can level and strengthen it using underpinning products such as helical piers and steel push piers. These piers are driven deep into the ground until they reach a solid soil layer. Then each pier is individually load tested. After testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers using hydraulic jacks. This will keep your foundation level and structurally sound for many years to come.
We use helical tiebacks and wall anchors to repair bowing or leaning walls. These tiebacks and wall anchors will also strengthen the wall to keep it strong so they won’t bow or lean in the future.
The products we use for foundation repair are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in foundation repair and basement waterproofing products in the industry today. Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services has the experience and uses the best products for foundation repair.

Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services will give you a free inspection and offer you the best waterproofing solution for you. We offer the following waterproofing services:
Interior waterproofing is the process of installing drainage pipes and drainage channels along the interior of the basement walls. These drainage pipes and drainage channels will drain the water to the sump pit where the sump pump will turn on and drain the water away from the basement and foundation.
Exterior waterproofing is the process of installing a waterproofing membrane on the exterior of the foundation walls. This will keep water from entering the basement. It also includes the installation of a drainage board covered in dimples, which allows the necessary space for water to travel from the top of the wall down to the collecting pipes below.
Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Service offers a sump pump system which includes the sump pit, sump pump, and battery backup sump pump. The sump pit collects the water from the drainage pipes and the sump pump turns on when it reaches a certain level and drains the water out of the sump pit, away from the basement. The battery backup sump pump is installed in case there is a power outage.
