Professional Foundation Repair Should Be Your First Step
Block Foundation Repair
From the first sign of basement water in your home, our top priority is to check the foundation and inspect it for any repairs that might be necessary. The goal is to provide a lasting foundation repair plan for your home. Simply sealing any cracks you may have with epoxy, cement, or other sealer just won’t be effective over time. If moisture has already compromised water-soluble materials at the surface, the damage likely extends completely through the wall.
When pressure builds up from water getting past failed drainage systems, it can expose your home to other hazards. Water under pressure, exerts enough force to expand cracks and buckle walls. Property owners who live in areas that experience significant variations in temperature from warm and cold weather patterns, can have damage due to the expansion and contraction of structural elements. The solutions which B-Dry® Licensees offer are designed to provide lasting results. Dependable foundation repair requires fixing any structure defects which will last for many years to come.

Methods of Foundation Repair
Trained B-Dry® Waterproofing Contractor
B-Dry® Dealers employ a variety of different methods for foundation repair systems. A contractor will perform a thorough inspection of your basement walls, existing drainage systems and any existing sump pumps. Our professionals will examine the problem and offer you some solutions based on any damage that's been observed.
Below are some of the solutions that are available:
B-Dry® Rigid Sealer
Our trained licensee contractors use B-Dry® Rigid Sealer, a proprietary waterproofing polymer that is able to cover basement walls and create a protective barrier from water intrusion. It is also known for its long-lasting durability in bridging cracks and defects in walls. As an integral part of the B-Dry® arsenal in our home foundation repair service, the Rigid Sealer is also beneficial for fixing stone foundations.
Without a working drainage system, water builds up around your home and will eventually put stress on the structure. Leaks or structural damage won't go away until the underlying problem is fixed.
One of the biggest structural threats with basements is underground water. As the underground movement of water constantly shifts in the soil, it leads to collections of water that builds up around your house, and puts pressure on the basement walls. It can overwhelm poorly functioning drain systems and eventually stress walls to the point of cracking.
Our contractors are experienced with performing services using Rigid Sealer and water drainage systems where they are most needed. The initial cost is miniscule compared to disregarding the problem. Procrastination can lead to structural problems and damage to your walls, carpets, and furniture. Once we install the system, it is covered by a lifetime warranty. Materials and labor are covered as long as your home is still standing.
More Serious Problems – Buckling and Bowing Walls
Complete Home Foundation Repair
The action of water and the weight of heavy, wet soil can do more than cause cracks and small puddles. Sometimes the problem isn’t discovered until the walls literally start caving in. Buckling and bowing walls are classic signs of a compromised structure. Fixing drainage systems will help relieve the hydrostatic pressure that causes these structural problems. We offer special foundation repair solutions to get your bowing or buckled basement walls back into safe, working order.
Many other contractors might suggest a complete rebuild at a significantly higher cost. Our solutions include structural support and reinforcing methods that can save you thousands of dollars in overall cost. We can install steel I beams and braces as cost effective solutions to remedy failing wall problems. Combined with our sealing and other repair techniques, we can help you solve the foundation leak and other water intrusion problems in your basement.
Schedule a free consultation in your home soon after the first sight of foundation cracks. B-Dry® waterproofing contractor offices are located in many areas of the country making it convenient for a trained contractor to visit and provide an assessment of the issue. The contractor will go over the methods available for basement and foundation repair, the cost, and the terms of the warranty. You will be relieved to learn that your water drainage or foundation repair issues can be solved and, at an affordable price.
