Get The Foundation Crack Repair You Need From RC Waterproofing in Oak Park!
Discovering cracks in your foundation, or your basement walls can be a very stressful experience. Not only are foundation cracks a common source of leaks, they can be a sign of any number of more serious problems. Whether you are dealing with an isolated crack that requires minimal repair, or a bowed wall resulting from a shifting foundation, RC Waterproofing can identify the source of the problem and provide an effective and long-lasting solution for protecting your property.
As an independent, owner-operated business, we are committed to providing honest estimates without the high-pressure sales tactics often used by larger franchises. Also, we don't have a 'one-size-fits-all' approach.
Do You NEED Foundation or Bowed Wall Repairs?
Many homeowners reach out to us because they have noticed a crack in the wall of their basement and are not sure what to do. While some very minor cracks are easily repaired with at-home solutions, we always recommend scheduling a comprehensive inspection to determine the source and extent of the problem. Even if you are dealing with a hairline crack, it could be caused by an ongoing problem that will continue to cause damage to your foundation. And, it's important to repair even the most minor crack, as it will only continue to get bigger if no preventative measure is taken.
As an industry leader in basement waterproofing and foundation repairs, we've seen it all. From hairline cracks that require minimal repairs to shifting foundations that have experienced extensive damage and require an engineered repair, we have a range of proven solutions that can fit your needs. Our team is highly trained in providing advanced foundation stabilization systems that can prevent future shifting and cracking in even the most unstable foundations.
How Will We Repair Your Foundation?
Bowed Wall Repairs with Gorilla™ Wall Brace Systems
The Gorilla™ Wall Brace System effectively stabilizes bowing or buckling foundation walls from inside your basement without any disturbance to the outside of your home. The galvanized steel beams brace your foundation wall against the expansive outside forces pushing against it.
The beams are attached to the concrete basement floor and the wooden joists above, which stops the buckling wall from moving inward any further.
Rhino Carbon Fiber Wall Stabilization
Carbon fiber wall supports are installed from the inside of the basement so it is less intrusive and less expensive than other repair options. There is no digging into the yard and carbon fiber is a clean and fast installation. The final finish is smooth, flat, and nearly invisible when painted. The repair is maintenance-free and can be covered without taking square footage from a basement remodel. The Rhino Carbon Fiber system is also perfect to install on a bowing wall in your crawlspace. It's easy to install in tight locations and the footer is already exposed in a crawl space which will ensure exact connecting to the footer of your home.
