Causes for Basement Issues

Water Damage

Water damage is one of the most common causes of basement issues. When water infiltrates a basement, it can lead to a range of problems such as mold growth, deterioration of building materials, and foundation damage. Water can enter a basement through a variety of sources, including leaky pipes, a high water table, poor drainage or grading around the foundation, or flooding. If left unchecked, water can cause significant damage to a basement, compromising the structural integrity of the building and potentially creating health hazards from mold and mildew growth. To prevent water damage from causing basement issues, it's important to address any signs of water infiltration promptly and take steps to ensure proper drainage and moisture control in the basement.

Soil Settlement

Soil settlement occurs when the soil beneath a building compresses or shifts, causing the foundation to sink or settle unevenly. This can create a range of issues for a basement, including cracking walls and floors, water infiltration, and reduced stability of the building. Soil settlement can be caused by a variety of factors, including changes in soil moisture, changes in the water table, and poor soil compaction during construction. Over time, soil settlement can worsen, leading to more serious structural problems and potentially compromising the safety of the building.

Damaged Walls & Footings

Damaged walls and footings can be a significant cause of basement issues. Walls and footings are essential components of a building's foundation, providing stability and support for the entire structure. If walls or footings become damaged or compromised, it can lead to a range of issues for the basement, including cracking, shifting, and water infiltration. Walls can become damaged due to factors such as soil pressure, water damage, and structural defects, while footings can become damaged due to settlement, erosion, or poor construction practices. If left unaddressed, damaged walls and footings can lead to more serious structural issues and potentially compromise the safety of the building.

What Is Carbon Fiber?

Carbon fiber is a high-strength, lightweight material commonly used in the construction industry for various applications. In basement wall repair, carbon fiber strips or sheets often reinforce and strengthen foundation walls that have experienced cracking or bowing. The carbon fiber is applied to the wall using an epoxy or adhesive, creating a strong bond that supports the foundation.

What Is Polyurethane?

Polyurethane is made by mixing two liquid components, which then expand and harden into a lightweight, high-strength foam that can be used to fill voids, level uneven concrete, and stabilize the soil. Polyurethane foam is an effective solution for many foundation repair issues and has the added benefit of being minimally invasive and requiring little to no downtime for homeowners/tenants.
