OUR SERVICES FOR YOU

Foundation Repair in Charlotte

Your home sits on a foundation, and the foundation sits on top of soil. For the foundation to be stable and support your entire house, the soil needs to be strong. However, expansive and absorbent clay soil common throughout Charlotte often becomes unstable because of weather conditions. The soil will shrink when dry, as well as swell when wet from 43 inches of yearly rainfall. Both scenarios result in improper foundation support, and you will notice symptoms such as settling, uneven floors, floor cracks, wall cracks, and bowing walls. Dry Pro’s variety of permanent solutions, ranging from helical piers and push piers to wall anchors and carbon fiber straps, as well as crawl space supports, will address all your foundation repair needs. 

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Charlotte

Many homes throughout Charlotte were built on top of a crawl space – typically a 1 to 3-foot “buffer” between the ground and the house. Tradition and code requirements have called for open crawl space vents, but these harmful openings bring humid air, pests, and water from Charlotte’s 43 inches of rain into this area under the home. Infestations, floods, elevated humidity, wood rot, and mold growth will result, and the stack effect will carry problems like unpleasant odors up to your living space. During a free inspection from Dry Pro, your inspector will recommend our range of customizable crawl space repair and encapsulation solutions such as vapor barriers, vent covers, dehumidifiers, drainage, sump pumps, thermal insulation, and support jacks

Basement Waterproofing in Charlotte

Some homes in Charlotte will instead have a full basement as opposed to a small crawl space, but they can suffer from the same issues. Charlotte’s more than 40 inches of rain do not mix well with the area’s clay soil. Clay absorbs a lot of water, expanding when doing so, and pushes on your basement walls. This leads to walls that crack and leak and sets the stage for other basement problems like mold growth, condensation, high humidity, floods, and musty smells. Dry Pro’s fully customizable solutions including interior drainage, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and wall vapor barriers will keep your basement dry for good. 

Concrete Lifting & Leveling in Charlotte

Concrete is used for many important pieces of your property because of its overall strength and durability. However, when exposed to the elements, it can succumb to various damage. Charlotte has mostly clay soil that also contains some elements of silt and sand. When it has to contend with more than 40 inches of rain, it can easily wash out and erode or become mushy and unstable. When concrete lacks proper support from soil, it will crack, sink, and become uneven. Concrete lifting and leveling has evolved over time, and Dry Pro offers polyurethane injections that are reliable, non-invasive, long-lasting, and quick curing so you can use your concrete the same day this innovative solution is installed!

FAQ

Any form of structural damage in your home can become worse, especially if left alone for a long time. Although concrete is strong, it is not the perfect material. It still requires some annual maintenance from a local expert. This allows it to be inspected every once and a while, as well as repaired when it needs to be. 

Structural Damages 

Once a crack has formed on your foundation wall, it always has the potential to grow larger and wider, especially if left alone. Cracks in foundation walls can extend to foundation floors, and, after years and years of neglect, they can even reach other areas of your home. You do not want this to happen to you, as structural damage in more than one area can be dangerous. 

Structural damage also can cause your home to become uneven as well. This can happen via sinking, heaving, or tilting, depending on where the damage is found and how bad it is. Not only is this incredibly unsightly, but also this can make your home unsafe to inhabit. 

Water Damages 

Any opening in your foundation wall is an invitation for water to enter through. Water damage is quite common and can be one of the most expensive damages to repair. Some of these include:  

  • Mold and mildew 
  • Wood rot 
  • Musty odors 
  • Water stains  

Leaks and floods also can introduce pests, both big and small. Many common insect pests are attracted to wet, humid environments, and cracks in foundation walls are the perfect way for them to enter your home. Larger pests, such as rodents, also can be tempted to enter your home through any available openings. 

Maybe you or someone you know has a basement rather than a crawl space. Basements can also be affected by moisture and humidity. If moisture enters your basement through leaking pipes or a crack in the basement walls, this can certainly cause humidity to rise in your home. Just like with a crawl space, the warm air will rise into the other areas of your house. Your HVAC will do its best to maintain temperature and will have to work harder as the warm air travels.  

You may think that a vapor barrier and encapsulation are the same thing. While they often go together, the truth is that they are two distinct things. 

Vapor Barrier 

A vapor barrier is just one piece of equipment used when you’re encapsulating your crawl space. It’s a particularly crucial factor, to be sure, but it’s not the only step an expert will implement when they waterproof your home. 

The possibility of groundwater evaporating in the crawl space is reduced by a vapor barrier. A layer of plastic is placed across the crawl space surface and overlapped at the joints. Moisture can penetrate the vapor barrier and enter the crawl space if vapor barriers are not sealed. That’s why it’s a smart idea to have a professional install them, so there are no accidental gaps. 

Encapsulation 

Encapsulation is the umbrella term used for when waterproofing measures are used to seal your crawl space away from moisture, pests, and other factors. This process involves, as the name suggests, fully encapsulating your crawl space. It reduces the amount of dampness in the area, lowering your risk of mold. Moreover, the expense of heating and cooling a home with a dirt crawl space is higher. This is because wet air requires more energy to cool or heat, and more energy implies higher energy costs. 

Encapsulation helps clean the air in your crawl space while improving the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling systems, lowering energy bills, and providing other advantages. Since it offers a barrier that prevents gas from gathering in the crawl space, an encapsulated crawl space protects against hazardous radon gas. Encapsulation itself often includes a vapor barrier, sump pump, dehumidifier, and other gear to cap it off.

At Dry Pro, we don’t recommend attempting to do any concrete repairs on your own. You may be able to perform certain activities around the house on your own, but lifting concrete is not one of them. You must ensure that the luster of your concrete surfaces is returned promptly and effectively. If you have concrete settling concerns, you should contact a professional concrete lifting and repair business, especially for an area as prominent as your home’s driveway. Don’t put your driveway in the wrong hands, hire a reputable company.
