Fixing a weak or deteriorating foundation is work that is better left to professionals. At Dry Basement® Foundation Repair, we know the ins and outs of repairing all types of problems that a homeowner could see in their concrete, block, or monolithic home. Settlement, wall and floor cracks, bowing walls, and leaning chimneys are just a few of the things that we can take care of. We can install piers, wall anchors and plates, and we will be able to seal cracks so they do not let in water seepage.
It is important to understand that this is not something that can be done by the average homeowner with a kit purchased from a home improvement store. At Dry Basement® in Kansas City, we ensure quality through the use of proven repair products and techniques. Basically, we know what works and what doesn't, and if you are experiencing problems with the base of your home, we can provide you with the work you need to get it strong, safe, and sturdy once again.
More times than not, structural problems are a result of the soil conditions around a home, or improper building techniques or materials being used during the time when the house was being built. When soil isn't compacted properly, it can lead to voids being created underneath the home, and this will eventually lead to settlement problems. Also, some soils are very absorbent when it rains, and they can swell up and put a lot of pressure on basement walls, thus causing some of them to lean into the home. Wall and floor cracks are often caused from concrete shrinkage, or from a rising and falling water table around the home. Regardless of what is causing the problem, we will be able to get to the bottom of it.
When you contact us for an appointment, we will send a trained, knowledgeable, and experienced structural evaluator to your home to assess the damage. He will take a thorough look to see where the problem areas are, and after a careful inspection, he will be able to walk you through the best plan of action for getting the issues taken care of quickly and effectively. If necessary, we can take a look at providing a basement waterproofing system as well.
