Smithville, PA has a climate that has harsh, snowy winters, hot and humid summers and rain throughout the spring and summer. Because of all of these changing weather conditions, your home’s foundation is vulnerable to damage. When the soil beneath your foundation gets too wet, it will heave and when it becomes too dry, it will shrink. This constant shifting of the soil beneath your foundation will also cause the foundation to shift and move causing foundation problems.
If you see any of these signs of foundation problems, contact the experts at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services. We will come and give you a free inspection and offer you the best foundation repair solutions to fit your needs.
For foundation leveling, we use 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. Your foundation will be level again and structurally sound for many years to come.
We also use helical tiebacks and wall anchors to repair bowing or leaning walls. These tiebacks and wall anchors will get your wall level again and they will also strengthen the wall so that they won’t bow or lean in the future.

Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services can give you a free inspection and offer you the best waterproofing repair to fit your needs. We offer the following waterproofing services:
Interior waterproofing includes the installation of drainage pipes and drainage channels along the interior of the basement footings. 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 includes the installation of a waterproofing membrane on the outside surface of the foundation walls. This 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.
The sump pump system includes the sump pit, sump pump, and battery back up sump pump. When water gets drained into the sump pit, the sump pump will turn on when the water reaches a certain point and the water is drained out of the sump pit. The battery back up sump pump is installed in case there is a power outage.
