Liberty Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

The northern end of the KC area, in areas like Liberty, is where people buy homes to not only have a wonderful place to live for decades to come, but it’s where those same people make significant investments into real estate assets that they hope will grow in value. Liberty homeowners take immense pride in their homes and want to do everything they can to protect them and keep them in good repair.

One of the best ways to do this is to make sure the home’s foundation is solid, level, and well-waterproofed. This helps keep the entire structure level and square, as well as increases its resilience against the elements. With foundation damage, the home can have trouble maintaining energy efficiency and overall comfort, and it can progress to making the home unstable. Partnering with a local expert like KC Pier is an easy way for homeowners to keep their foundations in the best shape possible.

Liberty Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

As you move north in the KC area to Liberty, and even to Kearney and Smithville, the vast majority of the foundations and basements are composed of poured concrete walls. There are also block and mortar walls and some slab homes as well, though they are less prevalent up north. There are even some stone foundations in the older areas of Liberty. These will all handle the wet & dry cycles of the KC area differently, though the cause is usually the same, settling. 

Settling is caused when the clay-heavy soils around the home’s foundation dry out. This causes the clay in the soil to 
shrink, which pulls it away from the foundation. When the area is eventually rehydrated with a heavy rain or similar event, it can cause a significant shift in the soil around and beneath the foundation. Since this settling will affect each foundation type differently, you must work with an experienced local foundation repair company like KC Pier when you need to have repairs done.

Liberty Foundation Piering & Repair

Foundation settling or movement is the leading cause of foundation damage, but leveraging professional foundation repair can help reverse the damage. Here are some of the common ways that foundations are repaired, as well as some of the ways a homeowner can be tipped off that repairs are needed.

Piering

Piering is the most common way to support a shifting foundation. It involves driving supports down to the bedrock, then using those to support the foundation and prevent further settling.

Drains

Installing exterior or interior drains adjacent to the foundation can help redirect an enormous amount of water to a more desirable location, such as a sump pit.

Crack Filling & Leak Stoppage

Filling cracks and stopping leaks are some of the most common repairs done. In many cases where settling isn’t as severe, injecting some crack sealant and waterproofing the exterior of the foundation is often the best way to prevent water intrusion over the long term.

Sump Pump Installation

One of the easiest ways to keep water damage at bay is to simply pump the water to another location. Sump pumps can help pump excess water up and out of your basement, and away from your home.

Common Signs Your Home Needs Foundation Repair

1. Cracks In The Walls

Cracks showing up in your drywall or plaster is one of the early signs that your foundation is shifting and a sign that the damage can progress over time.

2. Sticky Windows & Doors

If your home isn’t level and square, you’re likely to notice many of your windows and doors becoming sticky or noisy during operation.

3. Crown Molding & Ceiling Gaps

Have you noticed that your crown molding is no longer flush with the ceiling? This could be a sign that your foundation is moving.

4. Windows & Doors Caulking Gaps

If you can see gaps between window and door frames, and the caulking used to seal the frames against the home, you are wasting HVAC energy, and are potentially experiencing foundation settling.

Liberty Basement Waterproofing

Not only does a foundation need to be solid and undamaged, but it needs to be waterproof to a high degree as well. Keeping your home’s basement waterproofing effective can help prevent new damage from occurring, and can help stop damage already in progress. Here are some of the biggest early indicators that your basement waterproofing needs to be reapplied.

Signs Your Home Needs Improved Waterproofing

1. Damp Walls

Many people think the damp walls are a sign that the walls are leaking, but they are a sign that the leak is somewhere else in the home. Damp walls are a sign that warm, humid air is getting into your home, and condensing on your cool basement walls.

2. Standing Water

Any signs of standing water in your basement should be addressed immediately. This is an indication of a serious water problem that will only get worse.

3. Mineral Deposits On Basement Walls

If you’ve noticed a powdery substance on your walls, it is probably the mineral-rich water seeping through your foundation and subsequently evaporating. This leaves behind the mineral residue.

4. Musty Smells

If you notice musty smells that you just can’t find the source of, it could point to a potential mold or mildew problem in your basement that needs professional attention.

5. Visible Mold

Visible mold is a sign that your waterproofing solution failed long ago. Visible mold is a safety hazard and needs to be professionally abated.
