Because of the large amounts of clay in the soil in the Mansfield, Ohio area, it is important for homeowners to watch out for foundation problems. High levels of clay, an expansive soil, can cause several different issues that might compromise the structural integrity of your home. When the soil becomes too wet, it will expand and push on your foundation. When it becomes too dry, it will shrink and create gaps underneath the concrete. These problems can cause the foundation to shift and settle, leaving you with an unstable foundation and home.
That is why it is good to be aware of the different symptoms of foundation problems in your home. Some of the most common signs that you are dealing with foundation failure in your Mansfield, OH home are:
These are signs that you need to invest in one of the premiere ECP (Earth Contact Products) foundation repair products from Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services today. If you have a settling foundation, we will use steel piers or helical piers to underpin it and raise it back to a safe level. For foundations that have shifted and caused bowing and leaning walls, we install helical tiebacks or wall plate anchors. These devices utilize an anchor in the ground next to your foundation to pull it back into place. We also provide carbon fiber repair and steel I-beams to stabilize cracked and leaning basement walls from the inside. These are just some of the foundation repair options that we offer.
Another important service that we can help you with to keep your home in great shape is basement waterproofing. If you have a wet basement, chances are, there is a problem with the surface drainage around your home. Surface drainage and exterior drainage are important in preventing water from getting into your home. While surface drainage deals with the gutters, downspouts, and the slope of the yard around your foundation, exterior drainage usually involves installing a waterproof membrane and an underground drainage system around your foundation walls.
Interior drainage can help remove water from your basement, whether it has leaked in due to a foundation crack, poor exterior drainage, or a severe storm with lots of rain. This system first collects the water that runs down your basement walls from cracks and seeps into the basement through the walls or floor using a system of channels and pipes. From the channels, the water is delivered to the sump pit, where the sump pump takes over to pump the water out and away from the home. Both interior and exterior waterproofing systems work together to remove water from the home and keep your basement dry and safe from problems like high humidity and mold growth.
If you do notice that your basement is extremely humid, or that there is mold growing in your crawlspace, we have a solution for you. We offer dehumidification services with Santa Fe Dehumidifiers and crawlspace encapsulation with vapor barriers.
