Before you decide on which foundation repair method is right for your Johnstown, Pennsylvania home, you need to know the cause of your foundation issue. One cause is water-saturated soil under and around your home. This soil can erode and form voids that fail to give your foundation the necessary support, which leads to settlement. Saturated soil might also expand and press on your foundation, causing the concrete to shift and crack. Lack of soil moisture can also cause issues as the soil will shrink and shift, causing settlement and foundation movement.
Watch for these common signs of foundation failure to know when it is time to invest in a foundation repair option from Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services:
To repair these issues in your home, we will install quality foundation repair devices. Wall anchors are normally used to fix shifted foundations by pulling them back into position and closing any foundation cracks that might have appeared. The wall anchors that we install are sunk into the ground next to the bowing wall and attached to the wall with a rod and plate. This rod can then be tightened to pull the concrete into place. We also install helical piers and steel push piers for sinking foundations and carbon fiber or helical tiebacks for bowing walls.
If the foundation problems in your Johnstown, PA home have caused water to enter your basement, get help from the experts at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services right away. We offer several solutions for your damp or wet basement or crawlspace. If the problem is high humidity and damp walls, you can invest in one of our dehumidifiers from Santa Fe. This will help prevent mold growth in your basement. Another way to prevent humidity and mold in your crawlspace is to have a vapor barrier installed. This plastic or foil sheeting is designed to seal the crawlspace against vapor entry.
Other waterproofing systems can be installed to keep basement leaks to a minimum. These systems include the exterior and the interior drainage systems. While the exterior drainage system is intended to keep water from gathering around the foundation to prevent leakage, the interior drainage system is intended to remove basement water to dry out the area so that mold cannot form and other such moisture issues do not become a problem.
