At EcoSpect, we want your basement to reflect a healthy area for your family to enjoy and we can give you a healthy basement that you can actually use.
The basement in your home should stay dry at all times to prevent mold, poor indoor air quality, and structural issues. For these reasons, EcoSpect installs sub-floor drainage systems that are designed to keep your basement dry. These closed drainage systems are designed with the use of a vapor barrier and sump pumps that transfers water into the sub-floor drainage and pumps the water out, away from the home. Our basement waterproofing systems are customized for your home to effectively keep all water out of the basement no matter the size.
In addition to basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation is another important factor of a healthy home. In fact, at least 40% of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home comes from the basement or crawl space.
Just like the basement, your crawl space is vulnerable to moisture, mold, mildew, allergens, odor and poor air quality that will spread to the main levels and throughout your home. Let us help you protect your home with crawl space dehumidification, a crawl space drainage system, crawl space vent covers or crawl space encapsulation. Our crawl space repairs will ensure that you keep your home healthy and free of hazardous crawl space problems.
Another common issue we deal with is foundation cracks and buckling or bowed basement walls. With foundation cracks in the wall or slab, insects, groundwater and radon gas can enter and damage the structural integrity of your home; and bowed basement walls could buckle and collapse from pressure. Fortunately, our carbon fiber reinforcement will give your walls the tension resistance and strength it needs to counteract the pressure causing the walls to bow.
Whether you have bowing basement walls or leaking cracks in the foundation, our carbon fiber reinforcement and foundation crack repairs will provide a lasting solution to stabilize bowing walls and strengthen the structure of your home.
