OUR SERVICES FOR YOU

Charleston Foundation Repair

When it comes to the foundation of your home, structural integrity is essential. If your foundation isn’t strong, you’ll notice problem signs throughout. The soil in Charleston is a sandy loam that is well drained and moderately permeable. However, combined with the area’s 48 inches of rain, the sandy soil is bound to be affected. When the soil around and beneath your home washes out, you’re left with voids that can’t support the weight of your home. Charleston homeowners should look for uneven floors, wall cracks, sticking doors and windows, and nail pops in their home’s drywall. Luckily, the experts at Mount Valley Foundation Services have been repairing foundations since 1986. In our more than 35 years in business, we have developed the best tools for repair like foundation piers, wall braces, and for homes with crawl spaces, crawl space jacks to support even the most damaged homes. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair in Charleston, SC

While your crawl space may be an area of your home you think little about, the health of this damp, dirty area plays an important role in the safety of your home and family. With Charleston surrounded by the Charleston Harbor and many rivers, it’s no wonder why crawl spaces are commonly wet there. The area’s above-average rainfall doesn’t help either. Standing water and humidity can cause mold, pests, musty odors, and wood rot. Left to fester, your home’s structural integrity is at risk. Mount Valley Foundation Services offers several options to keep your crawl space dry. A crawl space drain moves water towards a specially designed sump pump where it is pumped out of and away from your home. Encapsulation seals out moisture from the area’s humid air while vent covers stop moisture from entering.

Basement Waterproofing in Charleston, SC

Maintaining a dry basement is critical to the health of your home and your family. From using the space as a fan cave to an office, your basement needs to stay dry. The area’s 48 inches of rain annually and humid summers are the worst combination, and expert help is needed. Charleston homeowners keep an eye out for basement mold, condensation, musty smells, or efflorescence on basement walls. For more than 35 years, Mount Valley Foundation Services has been perfecting our products to best protect your basement and keep it dry permanently. Our drainage systems, combined with a powerful sump pump and wall vapor barrier ensure your below-grade area can be finished without fear of ruining your investment.   

Concrete Lifting & Leveling in Charleston, SC

Enjoying Charleston’s beautiful weather is why many of us live in the largest city in South Carolina. But cracked, uneven and sinking concrete slabs steal value from your home. Like your foundation, the soil beneath your slabs is a sandy loam that easily washes out with the area’s heavy rainfall. When the soil is no longer there to support the concrete, it sinks, often unevenly, causing cracks and uneven slabs. Mount Valley Foundation Services uses polyurethane injections to stabilize the soil and gently lift and level slabs to their original position, thus restoring your home’s safety and value.

FAQs

About Waterproofing, Crawl Spaces & Foundation Repair in Charleston, SC

Soil issues are the main culprit behind foundation damage. When soil becomes too wet, too dry, or is not packed together tightly enough, foundation problems occur. Wall anchors work to remove soil from the equation all together so that your foundation doesn’t have to depend on it to stay afloat. Instead, the strength of the wall anchors becomes the primary force that keeps your home secure! 

First, turn off your main water supply if the leak is significant or a pipe has burst. This is considered a plumbing emergency, and most professional services will respond immediately. Turning off your water will avoid leakage if the leaks are small or you can’t discover them, but it may not be the most effective way to deal with the matter. Instead, contact a professional basement specialist and request a thorough, free evaluation of your property. They’ll be able to pinpoint the source of the leaks and any secondary damage, as well as design a personalized solution to the problems your home is experiencing as a result. 

Most homeowners, understandably, prefer to do their own house maintenance.  However, we recommend that basement moisture problems be left to the professionals. DIY options might cause more damage if things go wrong during the process. Your local home improvement store is likely to provide a variety of basement waterproofing options.  

Although they may appear to be effective solutions at first sight, they are typically not long-lasting and fail to solve your problem permanently. Instead, you’ll find yourself repeating the same project over and over, never fixing the issue at the source. As a result, moisture will continue to enter your basement. 

Yes, uneven concrete can usually be repaired and brought back to its former brilliance. Other methods of restoration are required if the concrete has experienced too much damage in the form of severe fractures, dramatic settling, or missing pieces. Lifting and stabilizing concrete that isn’t excessively fractured or uneven is possible, but slabs that are beyond repair may need to be totally removed and repoured. Because this may be costly and time-consuming, it is better to address possible issues as soon as they arise.
