Waterproofing a Basement in Union City CA
If you’re getting water in your basement once in a while, we will determine why it is happening and figure out how to prevent it from happening again.

Sunken Concrete Slab Lifting in Union City and the Tri-City Area
Some property owners discover that a section of their concrete sidewalk, terrace, driveway or garage floor has sunken a little through the years. If this happened at your property, we can usually correct it through a process often called mud jacking or slabjacking.
Mudjacking is a procedure where we shoot a dense substance beneath a low slab. This liquid mud is strong enough to steadily push the slab upwards until it reaches the desired height.
Concrete slab lifting is the economical strategy to solve your sloping courtyard or sidewalk. It also help stop trips and accidents.
Why Is This Problem Happening to Me?
While we can’t see it happen, our soil shifts a little with time. It can settle and stretch.
This happens primarily due to the effects of moisture and changes in temperature.
And even if this activity is very small and gradual, these contraction and expansion motions could add stress on whatever structure sits on top of (or even in) that ground. And over time, this frequent tension could affect the condition of just about any kind of solid building.
We may be unable to control our weather or the composition of the soil here in Alameda County, but there are some variables you can control.
To start with, your property ought to be graded so that it transfers water away from your house. Next, you will need a decent gutter system for preventing the rain that lands on your home from accumulating around it.
Another issue that influences this condition is the physical makeup of the ground under your home.
Various kinds of soil vary with the amount of moisture they retain. Some soil sustains more water (thereby swelling and expanding) more than other types do.
At some point, you might develop little cracks throughout the structure of your house. These minor cracks will allow in moisture and air, and then those small cracks might get just a little bigger each year.
Can I Wait On This?
If it appears you might have a concern, it’s best to have it checked by a professional.
Even if you can’t do the repair right now, at least call someone to have a look at it.
It’s best to not simply dismiss it and then just hope that it quietly goes away. Because it won’t simply go away.
Basement foundation crack repair is a problem you should work at quicker instead of later.
Your basement foundation is supporting your whole building. The walls, floors, and even the roof all depend on it. If you have problems, a homeowner should address it today so it won’t develop into a more severe situation later.
