Warranted Methods For Foundation Crack Repair
When water starts to leak through your basement walls or floors, it can quickly lead to a very serious flood in your home. At Foundation Repairs Ottawa, we provide a variety of repair products and techniques — each designed specifically to take on a different source of leaks in their foundation walls and basement’s concrete floors.
Repairing & Straightening Tilting Walls
Basement walls that are showing signs of bowing, buckling and tilting can only get worse over time. Any foundation walls that are showing these signs should be addressed before finishing the basement. At Foundation Repair Ottawa, we recommend correcting damage done to failing foundation walls with the GeoLock™ Wall Anchor System.
Looking for Tell-tale signs
Foundation settlement problems and settlement house movement are surprisingly common, mainly because buildings are heavy and some types of soil have poor load-bearing capability. Foundation settlement typically occurs when soil compresses (settles) or is washed away because of heavy rain or a water leak.
Moving water away from your home
This is a perimeter drain, or a French drain, found quit often in Ottawa and it is the best way to stop a basement from flooding. This type of drain is a trench filled with rock or gravel that guides water running on the surface away from the area it surrounds.
Stop water from entering your home
A window well is the area outside a basement window, which both retains the surrounding dirt and drains rainwater away. Window wells are required when any portion of a basement window is below grade and may be a source of water penetration.
