Parkville Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Parkville is known as one of the nicer places to live in the general KC region, and homeowners that choose Parkville aren’t just looking for a beautiful place to live, they’re often looking to make a substantial financial investment in their home. Investments need to be protected, and that means making sure they are in good condition, starting with the very foundations they sit on. 

A home’s foundation is one of the most essential components involved in its construction. It keeps them on a stable structure, rather than the shifting dirt or clay, and it helps keep the house itself level and square. The biggest problem is that many homeowners give very little thought to the foundation of the home, once the home-buying process is done, which can allow minor problems to become major ones in a relatively short time. 

Partnering with a local leader in foundation repair, like KC Pier, can give you the advantage of keeping your home safe, structurally sound, and growing in value when possible.

Parkville Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Parkville is known for having a robust mix of homes from different eras, this has led to there being a mix of foundation types. There are slab homes, stone foundations, poured concrete walls, crawl spaces, and even block and mortar foundations. Another thing that we see a lot in Parkville is foundation settling. 

The foundation settling in Parkville is due to the high clay content in our soils, which contract significantly during extended dry periods, expanding, swelling, and shifting when rehydrated. This creates areas of instability beneath the foundation that needs to be addressed. When it comes to settling, there will be several potential solutions and each different foundation type will have ideal solutions and those that won’t work or are inapplicable.

KC Pier is able to help illustrate these solutions, as well as offer information on why each one is or is not useful. We have extensive experience with structural foundation repair, piering, and waterproofing in Parkville as well as the greater KC area.

Parkville Foundation Piering & Repair

With the degree that many foundations in Parkville end up settling, knowing what to look for in your home can be the difference between catching a problem early and missing it entirely. Below are some of the common indications that your foundation may need professional care, and some insight into common repairs, such as piering

Piering

Piering involves using support to raise or hold up part of a foundation or other structure. That support is driven into bedrock so that no further settling is possible, and to correct many of the symptoms that are caused by settling or shifting foundations.

Exterior & Interior Drains

Many homes benefit from the installation of interior or exterior drains, which are constructed adjacent to the foundation to help capture and redirect water, often to a sump pit located at a lower grade.

Sump Installation

A sump pump is often an essential item needed to pump excess water away from the home’s foundation, but many homes don’t have the necessary pit. Installing a sump pit and pump can help keep your basement dry. 

Crack & Leak Repair

Many of the moisture and stability problems are caused by minor cracks that are left to worsen. Repairing these cracks in one of many available ways can be the best way to begin improving the health of your foundation.

Common Signs Your Home Needs Foundation Repair

1. Cracks In The Walls

Cracks in the walls are one of the earliest signs that your foundation is shifting, and one of the most frequently ignored. Don’t make the same mistake. 

2. Sticky Windows & Doors

Doors and windows that aren’t mounted in a level, square building can start to stick and become difficult to operate. 

3. Windows & Doors Caulking Gaps

Noticing gaps developing between windows and doors, and the surrounding frame is a sign that your home has shifted considerably.

4. Sinking Foundation

If you can plainly notice, either from inside or outside the home, that the foundation is no longer level, you should speak to a pro immediately.

5. Patio & Porch Gaps

Your patio and your home should only be separated by a fraction of an inch, and that gap should be sealed. Seeing any other gap should be taken as a sign that things are moving.

Parkville Basement Waterproofing

Parkville foundations don’t just need protection against settling, they need to be properly waterproofed as well, to resist the effects of our local rainfall. Making sure your home’s basement waterproofing is working well can keep out excess humidity, mold, and more. Here are some common signs that your basement may need additional waterproofing. 

Signs Your Home Needs Improved Waterproofing

1. Damp Walls

Walls below grade, such as basement walls, are considerably cooler than many other surfaces in the home. If the home has higher humidity or other moisture leaks, there will often be a large amount of condensation on the walls.

2. Standing Water

There should never be standing water of any type in the basement. It can be a safety hazard, and it can contribute to mold problems that cause numerous health effects. 

3. Mineral Deposits On Basement Walls

Efflorescence, a powdery mineral deposit on your basement walls can indicate that your walls are leaking and allowing in mineral-rich water, which is then evaporating.
