Foundation Repair

Permanently Stabilize Wall

Your walls are the first place to look for signs of foundation problems. Vertical cracks can show up in drywall, and stair-step cracks run down cinder block basement walls. Neither of these are purely cosmetic—they’re structural too. At BAWV, stabilizing walls is the first thing we do to restore your home. Using tools personalized to your home, we anchor your walls into alignment and reinforce them to stand strong.

Permanently Stabilize Floor Framing System

When foundation problems strike, you’re going to feel it in your floors. Sagging, bouncing, uneven floors—all little issues telling you to act fast, and with BAWV, you can. Any issue with your floors is a problem we want to address permanently. The worry stops with us, and that’s because we give you industry-leading supports fitted to your foundation to put an end to sagging, uneven floors.

Permanently Stabilize Perimeter Foundation

Settlement is what happens when the soil beneath your home erodes, shifts, and dips, pulling your foundation down with it. When this happens, BAWV is ready with foundation support piers. Piers are support beams attached to your foundation and drilled into the ground. They reach down to load-bearing soil and raise your sinking foundation back up. With foundation piers from BAWV, we’ll get your home back on solid ground.

Basement Waterproofing

Control Wall Moisture

The worst thing to have in your basement is uncontrolled moisture. Moisture is what mold needs to grow, and that means if you have any organic material in your basement (fabric, wood, carpet, books, and prized mementos), it can get ruined—and fast. But moisture doesn’t just get in through open doorways and windows. It can get in through even the smallest cracks in your walls. That’s why our first step in basement waterproofing is sealing your walls with an industry-leading vapor barrier.

Control Ground Water Seepage

It’s impossible to keep water 100% out of your basement. Doing so could actually increase the pressure it puts on your home from the outside. Instead, you want to control it. You want to gather it all up and send it away from your foundation so that it can’t damage your home. That’s why an interior drainage and sump pump system is so important: they remove water and relieve the pressure put on your foundation, protecting your home from water damage.

Control the Environment

The final piece to the puzzle of basement waterproofing is an energy-efficient dehumidifier. Mold spores in the air can cause you and your family to have allergic reactions like coughing and shortness of breath. Not to mention, mold also eats away at your home! A dehumidifier cleans the air of mold spores and robs it of its food source—moisture. At BAWV, our dehumidifiers aren’t just a guaranteed breath of fresh air, they’re easy on energy bills, too.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Control Ground Water Seepage

The ground around and under your house is full of water. Rain and snow saturate the soil, seep into your crawl space, and evaporates, filling the crawl space with moisture and humidity. It’s the perfect environment for mold and wood rot to eat away at the structure of your home. The first thing we do to stop this from happening is to add drainage in your crawl space to cycle out the water trying to get in.

Change the Environment

The next step we take to protect your crawl space from moisture is to seal it with an industrial grade vapor barrier. This will change the environment in your crawl space and keep it controlled. It will keep all the moisture trying to destroy your home from getting in through open crawl space vents, gaps in the foundation wall, and any other opening. All of these need to be encapsulated. With encapsulation from BAWV, a healthier, more stable home is finally possible.

Properly Insulate the Home

Imagine you left your front door open all winter long. That’s what it’s like without a properly insulated crawl space. With your crawl space and subfloor exposed to the elements, your floor will get cold, and then you’ll see your energy bills climb as your heating overworks itself. That’s why BAWV installs customizable insulation blocks that resists moisture and mold, keep your home warm, and your energy bills low.

Concrete Lifting

Stabilize Concrete

Chances are there’s a lot of concrete around your home. Over time, your concrete will sink and crack under the changing weather and eroding soil. You might not think it’s a big deal, but damaged concrete creates tripping hazards to children and the elderly, damages your car, and eats away at your property value. You need a fast, reliable, and eco-friendly solution. Luckily, we have one. Polyurethane concrete injections from BAWV can restore your concrete in minutes.

Caesar Goodman was a delight and super informative in helping me make an informed decision on what to do with my ground floor. He answered all my questions and concerns effectively and patiently. Cesar is a great asset to Basement Authority‘s of WV. Highly recommend it. I now feel confident that my ground floor will be eliminated of me having to empty three dehumidifiers on a regular daily basis. What a relief!

Had my basement window well replaced by Bix after it started to cave in and fill with water after a storm. They were quick to come out and price it and got me scheduled quick as well. They came out on time and got the work done in a timely manner. The workers were friendly and professional. After a few rains they did a great job of coming back out and smoothing out the fill dirt and reseeding. I would definitely use them again.

Our experience with BA of WV was excellent. The contractor and project manager were thorough with the projections, planning and execution. We felt supported and heard throughout the duration of the process. We were pleased with all of the people who worked on our property—they were helpful, respectful and clean. Our foreman and his crew (Cody, Josh and Zae) did quality work from start to finish. We are extremely happy.
