Lee's Summit Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Lees Summit is a city made up of people looking not only for a wonderful place to live but also for a property or piece of real estate that they can make a considerable investment into. However, with homeownership, just as with other types of investments, one of the goals is to grow the value of the investment and reap the benefits. When that investment is a home, caring means repairing what’s needed, when it’s needed, starting with the foundation.

The foundation is the component of the home that not only keeps the home level and smoothly operating but also keeps the structure square. It keeps it out of the mud, and while necessary, it can be damaged and will eventually need repairs. This is why it’s important to know what types of repairs there are for different foundation options, as well as potential symptoms that indicate repairs are needed either to the foundation or the waterproofing solution.

Lees Summit Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Lees Summit is known by KC Pier to be one of the areas in our region that struggle with significant settling in the foundations of the area. This is due to the high percentage of clay in the soil composition, which acts very differently based on the time of year and the recent weather. During our dry spells, that clay contracts and pulls away from your foundation, and when the inevitable downpour happens, the clay swells and shifts, creating space for the foundation to settle into.

Since Lees Summit has just about every type of foundation type, including slab, poured concrete walls, crawl space, block and mortar, and even stone foundations, anyone you partner with to work on your foundation should be an expert in all foundation types, like KC Pier. As a local, family-owned company, our foundation repair experts are residents and are deeply familiar with applicable repair solutions. 

Lees Summit Foundation Piering & Repair

The foundations in Lees Summit are as varied and diverse as the residents, and this means that anyone claiming to do foundation repair will need to be well-versed in all potential techniques that might be needed based on the foundation type. KC Piers will be able to handle whatever situation you and your home find yourselves in. Here are some of the primary types of repairs, and the symptoms that might signal they are needed.

Piering

Piering is the use of external support to help prevent settling in a foundation. They are driven down to bedrock and in many cases can be used to help raise a sunken foundation, eliminating many symptoms of the foundation settling.

Exterior & Interior Drains

For some homes, additional drainage is needed, which is where internal and external drains can come in handy. They are installed right next to the foundation and collect excess water so it can be diverted elsewhere. Often to a sump pit so it can be directed off-property.

Sump Installation

Particularly when interior or exterior drains are involved, all that water needs to go somewhere, and often a sump pit is the ideal solution. This is a deep pit into which stormwater can drain, where it is then pumped out by a powerful sump pump.

Crack & Leak Repair

In many situations, the repairs that are needed to a foundation are needed because earlier occurrences of more minor repairs were missed or ignored. When these cracks and leaks are repaired, it is often the first step toward improving your foundation’s overall health.

Common Signs Your Home Needs Foundation Repair

1. Sticky Windows & Doors

Doors and windows need a square, level building to operate smoothly, and if that foundation has shifted one of the first signs you may notice is that many of the windows in the home start sticking and doors creak.

2. Crown Molding & Ceiling Gaps

Seeing gaps develop between the ceiling and the crown molding is a sign that your structure is moving. Bigger gaps mean more movement.

3. Sinking Foundation

In some cases, the settling will be severe enough that the slope can be seen with the naked eye. Cases like this require immediate repair to prevent catastrophic structural damage.

4. Popped Nails

Popped nails are a progression of early signs of movement like cracked paint or drywall. If you’re seeing finishing nails popped out it means your foundation has definitely moved and that professional repair is likely needed to provide additional support.

Lees Summit Basement Waterproofing

Basement health doesn’t stop with a foundation that supports the home, it also requires adequate waterproofing to the foundation concrete itself to keep as much moisture out as possible. If you see any of the following signs, you may need to consult with a professional basement waterproofing company. 

Signs Your Home Needs Improved Waterproofing

1. Damp Walls

Since your basement walls are much cooler than other surfaces, and if there is a humidity leak in your home, the basement is where a lot of that water is going to condense.

2. Mineral Deposits On Basement Walls

Water with a lot of dissolved minerals, like water around KC, will leave behind a powdery residue when it evaporates. This is a sign that your waterproofing is failing. 

3. Musty Smells

Musty, dank smells are often the result of some form of mold or mildew growing somewhere dark and damp, that you might have trouble finding. This can be a sign that your crawl space or basement needs professional attention.

4. Visible Mold

Visible mold should be considered a very serious situation, and it can be a direct threat to the health of the inhabitants of the home.
