Mission Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing

Mission is a wonderful area of the greater KC region, and with a mix of older homes and new construction, the homeowners are highly motivated to maintain not only the beauty of their homes but their value as investments as well. To many, buying a home in Mission is much more than simply finding a new home in a great place, it’s about making a sound investment and helping that investment to grow.

One of the biggest factors in keeping the value of your home is ensuring that the foundation is in good shape, and free of unrepaired cracks or leveling. To do this, Mission homeowners should partner with a local company that has substantial experience in the challenges Parkville residents face regarding their foundations. We’re going to look at some of the most common repair solutions, as well as signs that you can look for in your home that may point to either foundation damage or failing waterproofing.

Foundation Piering & Repair near Mission

When a Mission homeowner partners with a foundation repair company, it’s important that they understand our regional challenges. Foundations in our area can be more prone to sinking due to the expansion and contraction of the clay in the soil. Olson is ready to provide the right solution for your situation, including the following services, and more: 

Foundation Piering

Using piers that are set into the bedrock below your home, foundations that have started sinking can be supported and even raised.

Gap Filling & Crack Sealing

By filling gaps and sealing cracks in the foundation, minor damage can be stopped in its tracks. 

Drain & Sump Pump Installation

  • The most effective way of dealing with water is to get it away from the home, and installing additional drains or even a sump pump can reroute that water to another location.

Signs That Your Foundation Needs Repairs

  1. Cracking in basement walls, which can be either small hairline cracks or large gaps
  2. Seeing a visible gap between the foundation and the porch or entry steps often indicates that the foundation has shifted
  3. Cracking in building materials like drywall and plaster can indicate that the foundation has shifted and the building is slightly unlevel or out of square.

Mission Basement Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing is essential for homes in Mission. There are times when our rainfall is substantial, and that much water pressing on the foundation from the outside means that sooner or later there is going to be some water infiltration. Top-tier waterproofing can ensure that the water is kept at bay, but you should be on the lookout for signs like the following, that indicate new waterproofing is needed soon. 

Signs That Your Basement Waterproofing Is Failing

  1. Standing water is one of the most obvious signs that your basement waterproofing is no longer working, and it should be considered one of the most urgent signs that repair is needed. Standing water can lead to mold and other issues. 
  2. If you’ve noticed that your basement walls are often damp, it could mean that humid air is entering your home elsewhere, then subsequently condensing on the cooler concrete.
  3. Sometimes slow leaks will evaporate relatively quickly, but they will also leave behind a mineral scale afterward. Seeing these deposits can mean your basement waterproofing is no longer effective.

Foundation Repair & Basement Waterproofing in Mission

There is a growing number of homeowners that only think about the health or condition of their foundation during the home buying or selling process, or when problems develop. Unfortunately, this not only results in the homeowner having very little information on or visibility into their foundation’s condition and need for repairs. This allows plenty of time for small problems to grow into large ones that require more time and money to fix. 

If it’s been a while since your last foundation inspection, if you’ve never had one, or if you’ve started to see any of the signs we covered here, then it’s time to reach out for professional help.
