Basement Waterproofing

Before any work begins on your project a thorough inspection of your Cranford home takes place and a custom plan is developed that takes into account your home’s age, property grading, foundation depth and more.

Benefits of Basement Waterproofing

Along with keeping your basement dry, basement waterproofing also provides additional benefits.

  • Improved health and safety. If your basement is wet and damp it is unfortunately ideal for mold growth which can result in respiratory infections and allergy symptoms.
  • Increased home value. If you plan on selling your home in the future, having a wet or damaged basement will lower your home’s value. Having an installed basement waterproofing system may also increase your home’s resale value.
  • More usable space.Having a waterproofed basement means more usable space. You can use for an in-home theater, a new office or bedroom.
  • Peace of mind. Know that your basement is safe, dry and protected even during heavy rains.

Crawl Space Repair / Encapsulation

Your may have a crawl space, and it is likely that you haven’t been down there in a while. What you may not realize is that crawl spaces are the perfect breeding ground for mold, bugs, and moisture damage. Common crawlspace issues include:

  • Mold growth leading to common respiratory infections and allergy symptoms.
  • Mold growth leading to common respiratory infections and allergy symptoms.
  • Bugs, insects and rodents in the space.

Proper crawl space repair and encapsulation can prevent these issues from developing.

How the Crawl Space Repair Process Works

Your home and crawl space cannot be disconnected but you can separate your crawl space from the outdoors.

  1. The area is dried:Any pooled water is removed from the area and the crawl space is completely dry.
  2. Sump Pump Installation:A sump pump is added to your crawl space so any future water in the space is quickly collected, and pumped out and away from your home. A battery back-up system is also installed to ensure you have a functioning system even during a power outage.
  3. Crawl Space Encapsulation:A durable, protective liner is laid own on the crawl space floors and walls. Vent covers are also installed to seal off the area from moisture, bugs, and bad smells from outside.
  4. Crawl Space Dehumidifier:A dehumidifier, made for crawl spaces is placed in the space to control humidity and prevent any mold growth or warm, humid air.

Though the process may seem complicated, Blue Umbrella Waterproofing is with you every step of the way. We only use and install reliable systems that you can count on for years.

Basement Foundation Repair

Along with basement waterproofing, we can help you with basement foundation repair. Basement foundation issues can be caused by various underlying issues, some of which can be identified by the cracks in the basement walls.

Vertical: Vertical cracks are generally not an indicator of a structural issue. As concrete ages it naturally shrinks. While not a structural issue, these cracks can allow water to leak into the basement. We provide basement crack repair and sealing solution to prevent this from happening.

Horizontal:Horizontal cracks are often seen on bowing basement walls, which are caused by external soil pressing basement walls inward. Our team can help protect your basement and strengthen bowing basement walls.

Stair Step:If the soil underneath your basement floor settles unevenly it will cause your home’s foundation to do the same, placing stress on the basement walls. Stair step cracks are a result of stress on the walls. If you have Stair Step cracks in your Cranford home the foundation should be examined by a trained professional.

Minimally Invasive Foundation Solutions

We offer minimally invasive foundation solutions to strengthen your home’s foundation.

Carbon Fiber Reinforcement
Carbon fiber is stronger than steel, which is why it is used in basement foundation repair. Carbon fiber strips are installed nearly flush along the walls. The strips can be painted over, but more importantly they strengthen your basement wall, protecting long-term support.
