Maintenance & Waterproofing
Maintenance & waterproofing for floor and wall cracks due to settlement, upheaval, frost heave, slippage, lumber and concrete shrinkage, and compression stress need to be maintained.
Settlement happens soil beneath the foundation or beneath column supports may shrink due to moisture loss, and concrete also shrinks as it dries and cures, as well as lumber as it acclimates with the atmosphere inside your home.
We install both Interior and Exterior French Drains.
A French drain is a ditch covered with gravel or rock that redirects surface and ground water away from an area. A French drain can have hollow pipes along the bottom to quickly vent water that seeps down through the upper gravel or rock.
French drains are common drainage systems, primarily used to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating or damaging building foundations. French drains are also used behind retaining walls to relieve ground water pressure.
Interior French drain installation is an effective way to waterproof a basement but requires the use of a sump pump. We are working in your town, doing Maintenance & Waterproofing in Cedar Grove, Clifton, Fair Lawn, Hawthorne and Saddle Brook.
