Like many other cities in Missouri, Avondale has experienced its share of natural disasters such as floods, storms, and even tornadoes. Excess water makes the soil expand, creating hydrostatic pressure against the foundation walls. When it rains, the pressure increases causing the walls to bow, lean or crack. That’s why it’s important to inspect your home regularly to look for signs of foundation failure and water damage. Some signs include sticking doors/windows, ceiling cracks, water seepage through cracks, and wall cracks.
In Avondale, MO, Pro Foundation Technology, Inc. can inspect the soil around your foundation to determine the best foundation repair solution for your home.
Pooling water in your basement is usually caused by poor drainage, plumbing leaks or inadequate waterproofing. Take preventative measures to make sure water damage doesn’t occur in your home.
Taking these preventative measures could help you avoid future settlement issues. But if you have foundation settlement, look for signs of water intrusion such as water in the yard and a wet crawlspace.
We offer several basement waterproofing solutions such as interior and exterior waterproofing, as well as a sump pump system. Our waterproofing products are designed to divert the flow of water away from the foundation and prevent pooling water around your home.
To repair foundation issues, such as wall cracks and uneven floors, we offer foundation repair solutions such as helical piers and steel piers. These piers are designed to penetrate deep into the soil to relieve pressure against the foundation walls. Our underpinning products are made by Earth Contact Products, the leading manufacturer in underpinning, so you’re getting quality products as well as the best service in the Avondale, MO area.
We use polyjacking, which is the injection of polyurethane foam, into the affected concrete. This polyurethane foam expands to fill the entire voids beneath the concrete and level the concrete. Polyurethane also adds strength to the soil so that it won’t be affected by the changing moisture content.
If you have concrete that requires repair, let Pro Foundation Technology offer you the best solution for your needs. Contact us today to learn more.
