MINNEAPOLIS FOUNDATION REPAIR AND BASEMENT WATERPROOFING
The foundation of your home serves a very important purpose. It’s the part of the building that keeps the house standing for decades to come. Surprisingly, we pay little attention to the lower base of our homes. The foundation of a building is the architectural element which holds the building to the ground firmly. It’s done in two ways — done deep or done shallow. This vital element of the home can have problems if not done right which can reduce the value of the home. These problems could either be structural damages, soil related issues and the like.

Moisture in your basement is a nightmare. Whether you use your basement as a living space or just as a place to store things that don’t fit anywhere else, a moisture problem is not a good sign. The first thing you’ll want to know is probably where the leak is coming from and there are loads of different places that the moisture could be coming from. The cove joint, which is where the wall meets the floor, over the top of your home’s foundations, cracks in the walls and floor of your basement, leaking basement windows, or clogged well and floor drains can all cause a build up of moisture that will only get worse as time goes on.

RADON MITIGATION AND TESTING
Radon is a radioactive gas that causes cancer once inhaled. This invisible, tasteless, and scentless gas rises out of natural rocks and gets into the air that you breathe. Radon can be found across the US and can get into all sorts of buildings including homes, offices, shops, and just about any other building you can think of. But, you and your family are obviously most at risk in your own home. Any home, whether it was built recently or decades ago is susceptible to Radon problems and that’s why we provide radon testing and mitigation services. We will test the air in your home for radon and make sure that it’s at a safe level. The gas will normally come in through a basement or an unsealed crawl space environment and can make you and your family sick over time. DIY test kits are available, but aren’t always that accurate so getting the professionals in to do a check will give you peace of mind, that everything has been measured accurately and correctly. And, if there is a problem, the people who can fix it are right there to give you their opinion on what your next steps should be in dealing with the problem.
Sinking concrete can be dangerous, not least in your basement. It can be a trip hazard to anyone on the property and can look bad if it isn’t being kept up very well. We will take care of any basement lifting or repair work that needs to taken care of so that your floors can be smooth and even once more in no time at all. The process is a relatively simple one. First, we clean the surface of the concrete that needs to be raised so that no dirt or debris gets inside during the repair. Then, we drill holes through the concrete and inject a special polyurethane foam into these holes. This will level the surface out and lift the basement. Once we have filled in the holes and patched over them, we’ll talk you through the curing process and give you a timescale for when you can use that piece of concrete again. This should only take a few hours, and afterwards everything will look exactly as if nothing ever happened.
