Repair and Replacement of Glass Block Windows

Repair and Replacement of Glass Block WindowsGlass block windows can provide added light along with welcome privacy for your basement. This can ensure the most comfortable surroundings for you and your family inside your Milwaukee home. If these windows become damaged, however, they can allow water and cold air to creep inside, reducing your home’s energy efficiency and diminishing your ability to stay comfortable indoors. If you are planning a Milwaukee basement repair in the near future, it may be worthwhile to schedule glass block window repair or replacement at the same time to ensure the best possible results from your project.

The Benefits of Glass Block Windows

Glass block windows were developed and patented in the early part of the 20th century by a German firm called Deutsche Luxfer. These blocks of glass were used to create skylights to allow natural light into darker areas of homes, office buildings and industrial facilities. Today, glass block windows are used in a similar way to allow light to shine into basements without losing privacy. These windows can provide solid insulation benefits and improved security for your home’s basement, making them a great investment for you and your family. Continue reading

All About Drain Tile Testing ProceduresDrain tile testing can help you determine the source of moisture in your basement and can provide you with the information you need to resolve these issues quickly. Working with an established Milwaukee waterproofing company can provide you with the right options for restoring your foundation and preventing leaks from damaging your basement area. Here are some key facts about drain tile testing and how it can help you protect your foundation and enjoy a drier basement now and in the future:

Understanding Your Drain Tile System

Your basement’s drain tile system allows water to flow away from your home and your foundation. This can prevent damage caused by prolonged exposure to moisture and seepage. Your drain tile system usually includes pipes with small perforations that lie atop a gravel bed. Channels and bleeders direct water from inside your foundation to the outside. If moisture is a consistent problem, a sump pump can be connected to your drain tile system to remove water from under your foundation on a continuing basis. Be sure to visit our Drain Tile Gallery to see pictures of this process. Continue reading

Poured Wall With Cracks and Leaks

Cracks in your foundation can result in serious damage to interior spaces of your Milwaukee home. Addressing these issues as quickly as possible by calling a Milwaukee foundation repair company can help you protect the value of your property. Here are some of the most important things you should know about the foundation crack repair process.

Not All Cracks Leak

Cracks in the early process of formation may not leak or seep. This can create a false impression that these cracks are not serious and need no professional attention. Calling on an expert in Milwaukee foundation repair can allow you to determine if your cracks require immediate repair or whether they can be addressed at a later point in their development.

The Crack-Injection Method

Most foundation repair process begin with a thorough evaluation of the condition of your interior and exterior walls and a good look at any cracks that may be forming in your foundation. If large cracks are present, your foundation expert will generally begin the repair process by drilling carefully placed injection holes that angle in directly to the area of the crack. Injection ports are then placed in these drilled holes to deliver the chemical mixture precisely where it belongs. The crack-injection method is strictly for poured wall repairs, not for block walls.

How Does the Process Work?

Once the holes have been drilled, your foundation repair team will inject a moisture-activated urethane mixture into the ports, starting from the bottom and working their way upward to the top. This chemical mixture will react with water to expand, filling in any cracks and increasing the overall stability and strength of your basement walls and foundation. When the curing process is finished, any leaks in your poured wall foundation should be eliminated.

The Milwaukee foundation repair experts at Accurate Basement Repair can provide you and your family with the most practical and cost-effective solutions for all your foundation cracks and repair needs. We have the experience and the proven know-how to get the job done right and to provide you with outstanding customer support.
