Since 1997, BQ Basements & Concrete has been your local expert in basement and crawl space waterproofing, foundation repair, and concrete lifting services. As your neighborhood foundation experts, we care about the health and safety of your home.
If everyone is coming to your home for the holidays, you’ll want to ensure your home is ready. Issues inside and outside your home can ruin your family gatherings.
Here is a list of items you can inspect to ensure your home is safe for the holidays:
Examine Your Concrete for Uneven Slabs or Cracks – Over time, the soil underneath your sidewalk slabs can wash away, causing the slab to sink. Uneven concrete slabs are a tripping hazard for anyone visiting your home. This could be a detriment to your guests and can leave you liable for any injuries associated.
Inspect Your Crawlspace for Moisture – The smell of a musty, moist crawlspace could travel into your home and cover up the delicious smells of your Thanksgiving dinner. Having your crawlspace waterproofed and encapsulated mitigates any moisture and mold and keeps it from travelling to the upper floors.
Check Your Foundation Walls for Cracks or Bulges – Your home’s foundation is one of the most essential parts! As the weather gets colder, freezing rain and snow can get into existing cracks and make them larger. Addressing cracks as soon as they appear will help you avoid long-term damage.
Consult a foundation repair specialist if you think you may have a problem. The experts at BQ Basements & Concrete can help inspect and repair any foundation or waterproofing concerns. Give us a call today at (215) 709-6225.
