Oakmont, PA is a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA and is part of the Pittsburgh Metro Area. The city has cold, snowy winters and hot, humid summers. Because of these ever-changing weather conditions, the foundation of your home may be vulnerable to settling or failure. The soil beneath your foundation will expand when it gets wet and shrink when dry. So the thawing of the snow in the spring and the summer rains will cause the soil to expand. The hot, dry summers will cause the soil to shrink. This shifting of the soil beneath your foundation will cause your foundation to shift and move causing foundation problems.
When the foundation of your home is damaged, the entire home will have structural damage. Some of the structural damage that can occur throughout your home and some of the signs to look for are:
If you notice any of these signs of foundation problems, it is important to contact a professional to come in and inspect your home. Matthews Wall Anchor are the experts to contact for a free inspection. We have the experience and use only the best products for foundation repair.
We use underpinning products such as helical piers and steel push piers to get your foundation back to its original level and structurally sound again. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Then each pier is individually load tested. After load testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers to level and stabilize the structure for many years to come.
For bowing or leaning walls, helical tiebacks and wall anchors are used to pull the wall back to its original level. These tiebacks and anchors also strengthen the wall so that they will not bow or lean in the future.
All of the products we use for foundation repair are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the very best in the industry. You can be assured that you are getting the best products and an experienced team when you contact Matthews Wall Anchor for foundation repair.
If you have water in your basement, it can cause you to lose living space, ruin personal possessions and will become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. When mold spores get into the air that you breathe, it can cause health issues for you and your family.
Even if you don’t see standing water in your basement, there are other signs that you may have a damp or wet basement. Some of the not-so-obvious signs of a damp basement are:
Let the professionals at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services come and inspect your basement for water problems. We have several solutions to get your basement dry and keep it that way for years to come. We offer:
Exterior waterproofing includes installing a waterproofing membrane on the outside surface of the foundation walls that will prevent water from getting into 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.
Interior waterproofing includes the installation of drainage channels and pipes along the interior walls of the basement. These channels and pipes will drain the water to a sump pit where the sump pump will drain the water out of the pit and away from the basement.
The sump pump system is where the water is stored and once the sump pit collects the water to a certain level, it will trigger a switch that turns on the sump pump to drain the water away from the foundation.
