FOUNDATION REPAIR IN ROCK CREEK, OH
The weather in Rock Creek, OH can cause foundation problems. This is due to the harsh winters, hot and humid summers, and rainy springs. When the soil beneath the foundation becomes overly saturated, it will heave. When the soil gets extremely dry, it will shrink. This shifting of the soil will also cause the foundation to shift and move. This will create structural damage throughout the entire home. Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services can help stabilize your Rock Creek foundation.
It is important to look around your home and see if have any of the signs of foundation settlement. Some of the things to look for are:
- Basement wall cracks
- Flooding or seepage in basement
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Foundation cracks
- Sticking doors and windows
- Garage door misaligned, garage column cracks
- Brick and masonry problems and cracks
- Sloping floors and foundation settlement
- Leaning chimney
is important to contact the professionals at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services for a free inspection. We will inspect your home and offer you the best foundation repair solution to fit your needs.
We use underpinning products such as steel push piers and helical piers to level your foundation and make it stabilized again. Steel push piers are driven into the ground and helical piers are like a large screw and are twisted into the ground. Both of these piers are installed deep into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Then each pier is load tested. After testing, the entire weight of the structure is lifted onto the piers using hydraulic jacks. The foundation will be back to its original level and structurally sound again.
To repair bowing or leaning walls, we use helical tiebacks. These tiebacks will get the wall back to its original level and strengthen the wall so that it won’t bow or lean in the future.
BASEMENT WATERPROOFING IN ROCK CREEK, OH

Let Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services come and give you a free inspection and offer you the best waterproofing service to fit your needs. We offer the following waterproofing services:
- Exterior waterproofing
- Interior waterproofing
- Sump basins
- Sump pumps
- Battery backup sump pumps
- Drainage systems
Exterior waterproofing includes the installation of a waterproofing membrane on the exterior surface of the foundation walls and prevents water from ever getting into the basement. A drainage board is also installed that is covered with dimples. This 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 in the interior of the basement footings. These channels and pipes collect the water and drain it into the sump pit. After the sump pit reaches a certain level, the sump pump activates and drains the water from the sump pit away from the basement and foundation.
The sump pump system includes the sump pit, or basin, where the water is collected safely away from the basement floor. After the sump pit collects enough water the sump pump will be triggered to turn on and pump the water away from the basement and foundation through a pipe. The battery backup sump pump will turn on in case of a power outage.
