We can rebuild basement walls that become weak over time
For homeowners in Columbia, Jefferson City, and the Lake of the Ozarks areas with crumbling basement or mason walls, we have solutions you can count on to get your home back in working condition. Whether it's a small repair or large repair we offer basement wall rebuild for your deteriorating walls. Sometimes, a home's basement walls may not have been designed or constructed using the best techniques or materials. When this happens, the wall may become very weak over time. It may start to bow into the home, or it could have a problem with what is known as honeycomb concrete. This is a concrete problem where the material starts to crumble and fall apart in a "honeycomb" pattern. It very quickly begins to let water seep into the home, and this on its own causes a lot of damage.
To determine if a wall needs repair or replacement work, we will send a professional, trained, and certified foundation expert to your home. He will carefully examine the wall(s) in question, and let you know what the best plan of action is going to be for taking care of the situation. If it is determined that you need a new wall built, an appointment for the work can be scheduled at a time that is convenient for you. We understand that this is messy work, but it is necessary. If you continue to let your home rest on a weakened wall, it is going to eventually collapse under the weight and cause a lot of problems. It's much easier to replace one wall now than 2, 3, or 4 more in the future because they can no longer take on the job of covering for another weakened wall.
We can also provide masonry wall rebuilds. This includes taking care of stone or brick basement walls. These types of foundations are commonly seen in this area of the country, and they need the same amount of attention that standard concrete foundation walls receive. The problem is just as serious when you have a fragile masonry wall that is no longer able to support the full weight of your family's home. You need to act fast whenever you notice that there is some kind of problem with the base of your home; doing so could save you a lot of time, money, and aggravation in the future.
