Specialty Foundation Repair, a company based in Concord, NC, is pleased to announce that they are offering basement waterproofing services in Mooresville and surrounding areas in North Carolina. Basement waterproofing has to do with a number of methods and materials used to avoid the penetration of water into the basement of a home or building. The professionals from the company will check to determine the source of the water intrusion into basement or crawl space. After the source of the problem has been identified, they will come up with a plan to resolve the issue.
Michael Masserang, owner of Specialty Foundation Repair, says, “It may just involve some minor landscaping changes, possibly a yard drainage plan to better funnel the rain gutter water away from your home. It may require external waterproofing of the basement wall and/or replacing clogged drain tiles. Possibly interior drainage like a French drain incorporating a sump pump or just an coating of a sealant to prevent cinder block syneresis. Whatever the problem we can fix it. After 20+ years of on-the-job experience there just isn’t anything that we have not encountered and fixed.”
Regardless of whether the water problem relates to the basement or crawl space, one factor that must be evaluated is where the water is coming from. The first step to be taken by professionals from Specialty Foundation Repair is to find out if the problem stems from roof runoff, landscaping, or other problems such as underground springs or high water table.
There are a number of factors to be considered. First of all, it is important to determine whether the landscaping is directing water away from the home’s foundation or funneling water towards the basement. Second, it is also necessary to determine whether the water problems are caused by rainwater discharge from rain gutters that are too close to the home’s foundation. There must be at least 4′ distance from the foundation. Third, it is advisable to find out if the rain gutters are appropriately sized to handle the roof area square footage or the water cascades from the rain gutters in heavy downpours. And finally, it is a good idea to determine whether the rain gutters are clogged, which prevents proper discharge through downspouts, thus causing the overflows.
Aside from basement waterproofing, Specialty Foundation Repair also provides other kinds of services, such as foundation repair, crawl space repair, mold remediation, and structural repair. This is to remedy crawl space moisture and odor problems that usually occur during summer or when there is high heat and humidity levels.
Crawl space repair can prevent a number of problems. These include: providing the ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow; growth of wood rot fungi which could devour the home’s wooden structural beams and posts; soak the fiberglass insulation, which will reduce the R-factor and the insulating properties of the fiberglass batts between floor rafters; increase condensation on any air conditioning equipment or ducts; mildew/ musty smells in the crawl space areas; soft or spongy floors; high cooling electricity bills; provision of an ideal breeding ground for insects such as termites, spiders, roaches, carpenter ants, which attract snakes and other pests; sweating interior windows because of high interior relative humidity; poor air quality due to mold spores, dust mites, off-gases from organic decomposition that could cause chronic health issues in the family such as asthma and allergy; and crawl space moisture vapor condensation on pipes.
Specialty Foundation Repair also offers mold remediation services. If mold has already established itself in the crawlspace, the company is ready to provide assistance. They have the expertise and the knowledge to determine sources of moisture, clean and get rid of the mold and can provide the homeowner with a game plan to prevent mold from reoccurring in a way that is affordable.
