What is Excavating?

When you hire our team, an experienced basement contractor will remove the dirt around your basement’s exterior walls to completely expose the walls, allowing the contractor to fully access the structure for repair, restoration or improvement. There are a number of situations in which you may need to work with a professional basement repair and excavation specialist, including a damaged foundation, decaying walls or when you’d like to waterproof your basement.

Serious Settlement Cracks in Wall and Floor

Since the basement is the foundation of your home, its walls support the main structure of the building. Factors such as poor construction, erosion or a shift in the ground soil may cause these walls to settle over time. When this happens, you need a Milwaukee basement repair contractor who can assess the damage and repair the structure. In most cases, your technician will need to access the interior and exterior sides of the wall in order to repair the damage and preserve your home’s structural integrity.

If your home is older, there is a chance that your exterior basement walls are in poor condition because they have been adversely impacted by the elements and may not have been properly weatherized or waterproofed at the time of construction. In other instance, the walls themselves might have been made of low-quality materials not meant to hold up over time, and a foundation repair specialist may need to enhance, reinforce or completely replace the wall. In order to do this, the Milwaukee foundation repair professional will need to have full access to the structure, thereby requiring basement excavation.

Are you thinking about renovating your basement or transforming it into a livable space? You will first need to waterproof the walls, and some methods of waterproofing involve applying a liner or coating on the basement’s exterior walls. The walls must be solid and free of decay or damage prior to waterproofing, so a basement waterproofing technician may need to rebuild or repair the walls before he or she can begin the process. After excavating the ground around the exterior walls, your technician will be able to finish waterproofing the area, allowing you to resume renovating the basement into the space you’ve envisioned.
