Basement Waterproofing

Homes with basements are common in Morgantown, but they often don’t fare well because of their below-ground location and our area’s above-average precipitation.

Issues like water infiltration, flooding, elevated humidity, and mold growth are common but dangerous. They negatively impact your home’s safety and structural integrity, as well as your family’s health.

With permanent basement waterproofing solutions including interior drainage, sump pumps, wall vapor barriers, and dehumidifiers, Baker’s Waterproofing can address these problems and create a safer and healthier living environment. 

Foundation Repair

Your house relies on its foundation for stability, but foundation damage often results from problematic underlying soil.

With foundation instability, you will notice symptoms such as wall cracks, bowing walls, sagging floors, and sticking windows and doors. Not only are they a visual nuisance, but these issues affect the overall safety of your home and family.

Baker’s Waterproofing uses reliable permanent solutions that bypass unstable soil to give your home the support it needs. These solutions include helical piers, push piers, wall anchors, wall beams, carbon fiber wall reinforcements, and crawl space supports

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair

Crawl spaces are less common than basements in our area, but they are just as susceptible to damage. By design, most crawl spaces have open vents that allow water, humid air, and pests inside. Additional problems that ensue include mold, musty odors, wood rot, sagging floors, and high electric bills.

To combat these problems, Baker’s Waterproofing installs permanent crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions such as drainage, sump pumps, thermal insulation, vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and support posts. Not only will your crawl space be sealed and conditioned, but you’ll breathe cleaner air and enjoy a healthier living environment.

Concrete Lifting

Concrete can be found all around your property. While it is durable, it can succumb to damage such as cracking, sinking, unevenness, pitting, flaking, and staining.

These issues are typically caused by unstable underlying soil that cannot properly support the concrete slabs.

Our state-of-the-art concrete lifting system uses quick-curing polyurethane injections to lift the sinking slabs back into place, restoring your property’s safety, appearance, and value. This system can be used on a variety of surfaces including your sidewalk, driveway, slab floor, pool deck, outdoor steps, and more.

FAQ

Foundation damage is one of the most serious issues that can affect any property. It can result in ongoing cosmetic damage and costly repairs, become dangerous for your family, and render your house unliveable the longer it goes unrepaired.

That’s why it’s important to reach out to local foundation professionals for an inspection and repairs as soon as you notice something is wrong with your home.

Foundation damage can take many forms, but the top concerns to be on the lookout for include wall cracks in your basement and drywall, uneven floors, and windows and doors that are difficult to open and close.

Hydrostatic pressure is a natural force created by the weight of the soil and the water that it contains.

Sudden or significant increases in hydrostatic pressure can be caused in different ways, but it is most likely to occur because of heavy rainfall. This can cause the soil to wash out or flood, or expand and press against your basement walls.

When this happens, structural damage is almost certain because hydrostatic pressure is often applied laterally. Concrete is durable, but it really cannot bend or flex. Lateral pressure can then cause it to crack and buckle. Bowing walls and foundation fragmentation are common outcomes when hydrostatic pressure gets too high. 

If you notice sudden rises in your energy bills, your supplier may have raised their rates. However, your home also could be the problem, especially if you have a crawl space with open vents. These vents bring in hot and humid summertime air, as well as cold winter air, and the precipitation that comes with each season.

Because of the stack effect, the natural airflow in a building from bottom to top, the air in your crawl space travels upward. Whether it is cold or warm, this air makes it difficult for your HVAC to maintain a consistent, comfortable temperature, and will continue to run. Thus, your energy bills will be higher than normal.

To combat this issue and create a more comfortable and energy-efficient home, consider encapsulating your crawl space.

SettleStop PolyRenewal™ foam injection is one of the most effective concrete lifting products on the market today. Compared to older methods like mudjacking, polyurethane foam is less messy, less likely to overburden already weak soil, cures quickly, and easier for skilled professionals to install.

During a professional inspection, our experts at Baker’s Wateproofing will determine the area and amount needed for installation. When the crew arrives to lift your concrete, here’s a look at their process:

  • Small, penny-sized holes are drilled into the affected concrete.
  • Injection ports are placed in these holes.
  • The two-part foam is mixed.
  • The foam is injected under the concrete, expanding to fill voids between the soil and slab.
  • The slab lifts back to the proper height as the foam cures (within 15 minutes).
  • The injection ports are removed.
  • The drilled holes are filled and sealed, as are any visible cracks.
