Overland Park Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Overland Park is more than just a place where people find a place to live, it’s a beautiful place where residents and homeowners can make an investment into a property that should grow in value. That investment is a home that the resident takes pride in, lives in, and potentially even raises a family in. However, to make sure that investment retains its value and has the best chance of growing in value over time, keeping it in good repair and safe from the elements outside.

To keep your home, family, and investment safe, the best place to start is the foundation. The foundation of the home is what keeps it out of the mud, and if that foundation isn’t solid, there can be significant expenses needed later for repairs. We’re going to take a look at why foundation repair and basement waterproofing  are so important for Overland Park residents, as well as others. 

Overland Park Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Stone, block and mortar, and concrete slabs are all affected by the amount of clay in our soil. The amount of clay in Overland Park can contribute to significant construction challenges for those living with various. One of the biggest challenges for homes in Overland Park is when the summer sun bakes all of the water out of the clay around and in the soil and that soil begins to “pull away” from the structure itself. 

When the surrounding area rehydrates with rain, there can be significant added weight from the saturated soil, in addition to the pressure of the clay itself expanding after taking on water. This is why partnering with a local expert to find a solution that works for your home is crucial. KC Pier is ready to help you keep your home safe and structurally sound.

Overland Park Foundation Piering & Repair

When foundations in the Overland Park area begin to shift, settle, or otherwise move and become less stable, there is a growing need for professional foundation repair in area homes. Here are some of the primary repair types, as well as some of the symptoms or signs that indicate they may be needed.


Piering is the process of installing support to help maintain the distribution of the structural load the foundation is supporting. These supports are installed beneath the footing and help to push the foundation or structure up to keep it in alignment and prevent some of the symptoms associated with a settling foundation. 

Interior Drains

Interior drains are another option for controlling water intrusion, and it involves installing a drain adjacent to the foundation and grading that down to a sump pit where a sump pump can move it off of the property. These are more expensive but are often highly customizable. 

Crack Filling & Leak Stoppage

For foundations that have suffered damage like cracks and shearing, we are able to provide crack-sealing services by either utilizing crack injection or other methods to either seal the crack or close it. This not only strengthens the area but prevents ongoing leaks that can create more damage or make existing problems worse.

Sump Pump Installation

No matter how well the foundation of your home is waterproofed, there will be additional water that accumulates around your home. Since you know this is going to happen, you can make sure your home is prepared, and have a primary or even secondary sump pump installed to pump this water away from the home. 

Common Signs Your Home Needs Foundation Repair

1. Sticky Windows & Doors

One of the first signs that your foundation may be moving is that windows and doors will become more difficult to operate. They’ll stick more, and will squeak more as well.

2. Crown Molding & Ceiling Gaps

If you begin to see gaps appearing between your crown molding and your ceiling, it may be a sign that your foundation is shifting. Call a professional as soon as possible.

3. Windows & Doors Caulking Gaps

Another sign that you may see in your windows and doors is that they will begin to separate from the bead of caulking that seals them against their frame. 

4. Sinking Foundation

If you have noticed a section of your foundation sinking, KC Piers may be able to help support and reinforce the foundation so that your home. This can prevent more costly damage by giving the foundation the support it needs to continue supporting your home.

5. Popped Nails

When drywall begins to move, it often allows nails used to hold it up to pop loose. These can be a simple indication that your structure is shifting.

Overland Park Basement Waterproofing

Another major concern in the Overland Park area is keeping your home’s basement waterproofing current and effective. This helps prevent new damage from water intrusion, as well as keeps existing damage from getting worse. Below are a few signs that your home may need to have its waterproofing updated.

Signs Your Home Needs Improved Waterproofing

1. Damp Walls

Basement walls are generally cool, but they should never be damp. This is generally caused by leaks or condensation, either of which needs professional attention.

2. Standing Water

If you’ve noticed puddles or other standing water in your basement, you definitely need to get a qualified expert to come to take a look.

3. Mineral Deposits On Basement Walls

Finding a white or off-white powdery residue on your basement walls is called efflorescence, and is a sign that your walls are letting water in. Call a pro to find the cracks and get your foundation fixed.

If you have never had your foundation, basement, or crawl space inspected since you bought the home, you may not even be aware of what’s going on. An inspection can give you a detailed look at the health and condition of your foundation and basement so that you know exactly what it needs. 

If you have noticed one or more of the conditions we’ve mentioned, it may be time to get a professional there to evaluate your foundation’s repair needs. No matter what your needs are, contacting KC Pier can help address those needs before they become much more urgent and costly.
