Foundation Repair in Burnsville

Did you know that the soil beneath your home’s foundation plays a critical role in its support and functionality? Unfortunately, Burnsville’s weather conditions can cause issues, particularly when it rains or snows. The silty, sandy soils mix with water, which causes settlement and sinking. This shifting leads to serious problems throughout your home, such as uneven floors, bowing walls, and stuck windows and doors. Luckily, Basement Authority of West Virginia has foundation solutions like wall anchors, pier systems, and crawl space support jacks, which work to bolster and stabilize your foundation long-term.

Concrete Lifting in Burnsville

Concrete only works well when the ground beneath it stays solid. However, the soil in Burnsville is often at risk of erosion due to frequent heavy rainfall, often resulting in cracks and unevenness. To combat this issue – Basement Authority of West Virginia offers a groundbreaking solution: PolyRenewal™. This tool is our proprietary polyurethane injection system that lifts and protects your concrete. It also provides a waterproof barrier between concrete and soil. Curing in just 15-minutes, you can enjoy stable, long-lasting concrete that is protected against the elements. 

FAQs

About Waterproofing, Crawl Spaces & Foundation Repair in Burnsville, WV

Water seeps through cracks in basement walls, usually formed when hydrostatic pressure pushes up against the foundation. For that reason, foundation solutions exist to repair basement walls and keep them supported. Additionally, some basement waterproofing solutions drain water out of your basement to prevent seeping water from causing damage. At Basement Authority, we use wall repair beams and carbon fiber reinforcements to realign your basement walls and close any cracks that may have formed. In conjunction with these repair tools, we also install floor drains and vapor barriers to keep water from leaking into your basement in the first place.

Mold needs two things to grow – relative humidity over 50 percent, and organic material to feed on. Unfortunately, your crawl space is prone to both of these conditions. Most crawl spaces are built with wooden support beams which serve as a food source for mold. Moreover, many crawl spaces are built with open vents and directly above dirt ground. Both of these contribute to rising humidity in your crawl space. Using crawl space encapsulation prevents mold build up by removing moisture from the equation. Vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, crawl space supports, vent covers, and crawl space drains all reduce water damage below your home. When mold has no moisture, it quickly dies.

Basement Authority of West Virginia can assess your home’s specific soil conditions and recommend appropriate solutions to protect your foundation, basement, and crawl space. Our solutions can be customized and tailored to your home’s unique needs.

No. We don’t recommend you DIY your sinking foundation. Foundation repair requires extensive knowledge and specialized tools. Without the proper training, you could end up causing more damage to your home or injure yourself. Not to mention, most home repair stores don’t carry the proper materials for foundation repair. Most professional foundation specialists use pier systems to keep your foundation protected from settlement sinking. Your local hardware store doesn’t carry these specific repair tools, or the machinery needed to install them.
