BASEMENT CRACKS

BASEMENT CRACKS

GIVE US A CALL TODAY FOR YOUR ESTIMATE

Basement cracks can be caused by a gradual increase in force pressing against the walls of the basement. This can come from both solids and liquids. Sometimes they can be hidden and small, so you may not see them if you’re not checking regularly. This is always worth doing.

If the cracks spread and widen, water can seep in, walls can sag and major fractures can occur too. The solution to this is Seattle Foundation Repairs. We have a team of basement specialists who can fix all these issues for you.

Repairing Cracks In Your Basement

To keep your building stable and protect against moisture, repair the cracks in your basement.

If cracks do exist, they could be a sign of foundation settlement.

 

Here is a list of other foundation concerns that you might like to look out for:

  • Cracks in the floor
  • A chimney that’s no longer straight
  • Uneven floors
  • Windows and doors that don’t close properly
  • Walls that don’t appear level
  • Faulty posts and beams
  • Problems with staircases and the entrance to your home

WHAT CREATES PROBLEMS IN BASEMENTS AND FOUNDATIONS?

The land your house is built upon can shift over time. This is a result of water levels increasing or decreasing. Once the land moves, your house will move with it.

You will need to speak to an expert as soon as possible when you notice any problems. It is not something you can do on your own, as there are special procedures to undertake, and risks to be aware of. Problems with the structure of your house will not improve by themselves.

Sometimes, when you notice a crack, you might think that’s all that needs to be dealt with. But it can be a sign of serious faults with your foundation. Seattle Foundation Repairs can send you an inspector who is qualified to assess the situation. The basement crack repair services we provide will ensure that your home is never threatened by its foundations ever again. We will seal up the cracks and make your home waterproof.

EQUIPMENT FOR BASEMENT CRACK REPAIR

There are some particular pieces of equipment used in basement crack repair, and they include several types of pier, such as helical, steel, and hydraulic variants. Anchors of a helical variety are also used.

  • Helical piers are designed to protect against pressure and are often paired with brackets.
  • Steel piers exist to hold up what’s above them, and this means they must be pushed as far down into the land as possible. This ensures stability.
  • Anchors are used specifically to deal with walls that are sagging or not level. They keep the walls in place.
  • Hydraulic piers are a more recent innovation that allows slabs of concrete to be kept even.

The creator of all the equipment that Seattle Foundation Repairs makes use of is Earth Contact Products. They are a team of highly competent professionals trained in the maintenance and repair of basements and foundations. This means we can stand by the equipment we use to fix the problems in your home, and it means that you can trust us.

It is very important that cracks are not left to worsen. If they do, they can be the cause of additional problems. We can send an inspector to you at no cost, and we will personally address your questions.
