Of all the residential foundation repair services we offer, we feel the common sense advice offered below to be vitally important. Please consider the following winter protective measures for your home’s foundation. Every year we service customers who could have avoided winter and/or freeze-related water damage and basement floods.

  1. Tie Rods
  2. Floor/Wall Seams
  3. Pipe Penetrations
  4. Wall Cracks
  5. Floor Cracks

Some telltale signs that these areas have leaked in the past are water stains, rust stains, white powder; salts and minerals leaching from concrete (efflorescence), cracks that seem to get wider, musty odor and dampness in basement. Basement Leak Prevention:

  1. Down Spouts
