water coming into st louis basement

Basement Waterproofing and Basement Foundation Repair

Basement, crawlspace, and baseboard waterproofing will help prevent water from seeping into a basement that is below ground. This area is often far more moist than the rest of the house, and we will inspect the entire basement before making a recommendation.

We can provide a simple, yet effective wall coating that will help waterproof the room. We can do the same thing with the floors, and we can also provide our customers with special moisture measurement devices that help them keep watch over the space. We learn from every project and strive to be the best basement waterproofing company St. Louis has to offer.

Another option we offer often recommend is sump pump installation. This helps move water out of your basement and away from your house and foundation wall. We can also turn to drains that will help water exit the basement. When we take on a project like this, we want our customers to understand what has been done, why, and how to maintain the basement in the future.

We are happy to return if the basement needs any more work, and we can also help with interior and exterior repairs that will prevent water from flowing into the room. Waterproofing is often the first thing that homeowners do before moving out of a house, or when they move into a house. We also help homeowners who have discovered that the basement floods. We can help mitigate the problem, and we can also do this before mold starts to grow.

In some cases, mold has begun to grow. We will waterproof the basement first, and we will handle the mold once the basement is secured. We also know that some waterproofing systems need to be renewed from time to time. We can put a new coat of epoxy on the walls, or we can paint the floors again to prevent water from rising from beneath.

french drain installation in st louis

French Drain Installation

When you want to direct water away from your house, a french drain is a great way to improve flow away from your property. We use a special outflow pipe that drains water through drains dug in the basement. A french drain can also be dug around your property to direct water away from your house before entering the basement.

Because French drain trenches are difficult to maintain and install, we recommend not trying this job on your own. We have an experienced team of people who are ready to help. We know the right location to install a french drain, the proper downgrade water needs to flow property, the right materials to use, and most importantly, how to install the french drain so it works great for many years.

It can be difficult to dig through the floors of certain homes, and we know exactly how far the trench should go to ensure your basement remains dry.

When we dig these exterior trenches, we also know how to make them unnoticeable around your property. We often use large stones to cover the drain, adding to the curb appeal of your landscaping.

foundation cracked in st louis needing repaired

Foundation Repair and Waterproofing

We are a foundation repair company that can handle repairs big and small. We know that it can be difficult to find foundation repairs companies in St. Louis and we make sure that we serve everyone in the area no matter how big the job might be.

These foundation cracks might allow water to flow into the basement, or you might need to seal the cracks before they begin to expand. Inevitably basements will get worse over time and require sealing the cracks thoroughly and effectively.

When we come to your home, we come equipped with the right experience to handle any foundation problem you need resolved. We always inspect your whole property, and recommend any repairs needed.

If we notice the need for immediate temporary repairs, we may shore up your foundation while we are there. Then we'll quickly return with our full crew to fix the problem permanently.

Many people first notice their need for foundation crack repair or foundation crack waterproofing when they see water leaking into their basement. However, sometimes other cracks exist where water isn't seeping through.

We can show you where the cracks have pushed through the whole foundation, and we can show you normal cracks that merely need to be sealed.

If you do not have a solid foundation under your home, it is very hard for you to keep your home in good condition. Plus, it will be difficult to prevent the home from slipping off the foundation if it is never repaired. This is why we inspect the space thoroughly before offering an estimate. We need to know if your home is stable before we trying to make the basement a dry place that you can use for storage, entertainment, or work.

st louis interior pipe drainage system

Interior Foundation Drainage

When you need other forms of interior foundation drainage, we can use special systems that will help remove water from the home. We know that you might have had water flowing through the basement, but we want to try other options that might better suit your home.

For example, a finished basement might need a special baseboard drainage system that will prevent damage to carpeting or flooring in the room. We can seal the walls again, and we can use drainage systems that run behind the walls.

As sump pump installation contractors, we know the best ways to force water out of the basement without interrupting the finished basement that you have designed. We know that you might want to use that basement as a living space, and we will do everything we can to provide you with a better foundation drainage system.

If you have a crawl space that sits under your basement, we can also provide a drainage system that will prevent water from rising up to the level of the floor in the basement.

Built-in wall drainage is very helpful, and it also raises the value of the home. Not only will you have a clean, dry home to live in, but someone looking at buying your house will know that you put a lot of time and money into keeping the basement dry.

exterior drainage system

Exterior Foundation Drainage

We also offer a wide range of exterior foundation drainage solutions in additional to the typical french drain installation. Many times a french drain is an effective water removal mechanism, but sometimes additional drainage techniques are required.

We can dig much larger trenches that can be filled and used to prevent water from entering the home. We can also make adjustments to the landscaping so that water flows away from your house. This is oftentimes especially important if you live on a slope or at the bottom of a hill.

Some families also prefer to use retaining walls or retention ponds to hold water that would have otherwise spilled into the basement. Each property is different, and we will recommend a course of action that makes sense for your family. We might also combine a few home waterproofing solutions because we know that some homes experience more flooding than others.

Attacking the problem from multiple angles helps us ensure that your basement will be dry for many years to come. Our French drain installation company can dig a couple of trenches, or we can use other outside drainage options around the property.

mold remediation before and after

Mold Remediation & Testing

When your basement leaks in heavy rain or you have large areas of heavy surface water flow, we will likely find mold growing. We know exterior water prevention will cut back on new black mold growth, but if you've had water in your house or basement for more than a few hours, we highly recommend a thorough mold inspection and immediate mold remediation services.

When we start working with our customers on mold management, we will also recommend any basement waterproofing services that we believe will be appropriate. We can use something like epoxy crack repair to prevent water from entering the house.

We can build an appropriately sized French drain to make sure that standing water exits the house, or we can show you where the basement has become so moist that we need to dry out certain sections.

Once you know what needs to be done, we can safely, effectively, and professional remove the mold.
