Prairie Village Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Prairie Village is one of the nicer places to live in the general Kansas City region, and the homeowners of Prairie Village aren’t simply looking for an ideal place to live and work, they are also looking for a wise investment that will grow in value over time. Homes in Prairie Village have some of the highest values in the area, and maintaining those values means keeping the homes in prime condition, starting with the foundation.

The foundation of the home is the first line of defense against the wet, often changing ground, and the damage it can cause to a structure. The foundation is responsible for keeping the structure square and level, to keep it stable and safe. If a foundation is damaged or is no longer level, it can put the entire structure at risk for catastrophic failure. Keeping the foundation in good condition only requires a partnership with a local foundation repair company, and the occasional inspection or repair appointment.

When you partner with an expert local foundation piering company like KC Pier, you and your home will receive an unbeatable level of service. Your home’s foundation will be inspected and evaluated in the context of the area’s soil composition so that an ideal solution can be created for the specific situation involved. 

Prairie Village is a location with a high proportion of slab foundation walls, as well as block and mortar. This means that while there will be some varying methods for foundation repair, many of them will overlap and unless your home is very unique, you’ll probably experience many of the same options and considerations as your neighbors or others in your neighborhood. 

Prairie Village Foundation Piering & Repair

Homeowners in Prairie Village are going to see some degree of settling and shifting of their foundations over time. This may be something that started before they even bought the home, or it may begin later on, but most homeowners will need to deal with foundation piering or repair at some point during homeownership. 

Interior Drains

For water that has made it to the foundation and is accumulating, interior drains are often an ideal solution. They can be installed into existing foundations and can collect and route excess water down to either a sump pit or location far from the foundation. 

Sump Pump Installation

The sump pit is the location of the sump pump and is generally the lowest point of the foundation and basement. It is a large pit designed to accumulate water and house the pump, but in many older homes, there was no pit constructed. Older homes that flood or have drainage issues may find significant benefits in a sump pump.


Piering is adding supplemental support to a settling foundation or structure. If the foundation has started to settle, a pier can be driven down to bedrock and used to support the structure in a way that will not move or settle more. This can prevent more shifting, as well as alleviate symptoms of foundation settling.

Crack Filling & Leak Stoppage

The reason many foundations have issues initially is that they have cracks and leaks that are never repaired. In time, minor cracks and leaks can create much more significant repair needs, which are also much more costly. Filling cracks and bracing the foundation were needed to prevent further cracking is vital to keeping the foundation in the best shape possible. 

Common Signs Your Home Needs Foundation Repair

1. Cracks In The Walls

Cracks in the drywall or plaster are some of the first indicators of movement or shifting in the foundation..

2. Sticky Windows & Doors

Windows and doors that become more and more challenging to operate are also indicative of early-stage foundation movement, with later stages creating very difficult-to-operate windows and loud doors.

3. Crown Molding & Ceiling Gaps

Developing gaps between your molding and the ceiling is a sign that things are moving.

4. Wrinkled Wallpaper

Wallpaper goes on flat, so if yours is looking a little wrinkled or dimpled, it can mean there’s been some movement.

Prairie Village Basement Waterproofing

It’s not uncommon for Prairie Village to have extended dry periods in the summer, followed by a sudden and severe rainstorm. These are the exact conditions that can make basement waterproofing a challenge, but simultaneously why it is so absolutely necessary for residents in our area. Waterproofing prevents damage to your foundation, but it can also stop existing damage from getting worse before it can be fixed. Some of the common symptoms of failed waterproofing are below. 

Signs Your Home Needs Improved Waterproofing

1. Damp Walls

Damp walls aren’t usually a sign that your walls are leaking, but they are a sign that your home has too much humidity, which is condensing on the cool walls.

2. Standing Water

Standing water or puddles should be seen as an emergency situation, and a professional should be called immediately.

3. Mineral Deposits On Basement Walls

Small leaks in your foundation can lead to water evaporating and leaving a powdery mineral deposit behind.

4. Musty Smells

Musty smells are a sure sign that you have something growing, somewhere. Call a professional to find it and get it dried out.
