For many of us, our home is our greatest asset. Unfortunately, the value and utility of this asset can be seriously compromised by structural problems that are the result of a shifting foundation or basement floor. This will have a negative effect on livability and resale, and the problem usually gets much worse if it is not remedied as soon as possible. At Precision Concrete Cutters, we utilize a variety of methods to stop the deterioration, stabilize the structure, and prevent future issues from arising.
Hydraulic pressure is the leading cause of basement structural problems. However, there are things that can be done to neutralize the effects of water on your basement. We install sump pumps, bracing, and interior/exterior drain tile. Drain tile systems can be laid inside or outside the perimeter of the home. Ideally, an interior and exterior system can be unified as a single continuous chain loop system. An additional benefit of an exterior system is that a waterproof membrane can be applied to the outside of the foundation at the same time. This is very effective against seepage. If conditions warrant it, we also perform floor patching/replacement and complete basement/foundation replacement.
You don’t have to live with a wet or crumbling basement. At Precision Concrete Cutters, we have a solution for every basement problem. From bracing walls to water seepage issues to complete foundation replacement, we have the equipment and experience to do the job right. We can help you preserve and protect your greatest asset—your home.
