Basement Waterproofing in Lincoln
If you have water in your Lincoln basement, make sure your home has proper gutters and downspouts to redirect the flow of water away from your foundation. Trees and shrubs should be planted at least five feet away from your foundation.
Look for the following signs of moisture in your home to
determine whether or not you need basement waterproofing services:
- Standing water
- Insect infestation and nesting rodents
- Increase in utility bills
- Elevated radon levels
If you notice any of these signs, contact our experts. We are trained to find the source of your basement water issues. Our team of professionals will install an interior or exterior drainage system to keep your Lincoln home safe and dry for many years to come.
Foundation Repair for Lincoln
One of the biggest problems that many Lincoln homeowners face is
foundation failure. Whether that foundation failure comes in
the form of major foundation cracks or a settling
foundation, it is important to have it taken care of as soon
as possible. To fix your failing
foundation, we use structural underpinning devices from the
leading supplier in the business,
Earth Contact Products.
The devices that we use include:
- Steel Push Piers: These are driven in stable soils
beneath the foundation to support and lift a settling
- Helical Piers: These are used for the same purpose as
steel piers, but are screwed into the ground instead of
being driven in.
- Helical Tiebacks: These work much like horizontally
installed helical piers, to pull foundations back into place
in order to correct shifting foundations.
- Plate Anchors: These use a rod and
plate to anchor the foundation and restore it to its
original position after shifting has occurred.
Other Services for Lincoln
Since most crawl spaces are
out of sight, many homeowners tend to ignore this area. Next
time you're outside, look inside your crawl space for signs
of water intrusion. With moisture present in your
crawl space, you are more likely to experience wood rot and
mold growth. This is a sign that humidity levels are too high.

quality vapor barriers to damp proof your home and prevent
evaporation of ground moisture into the crawl space air. Contact Jerry's Waterproofing for all of your foundation repair and waterproofing needs in Lincoln, NE.
