Many of the most important parts of your home are those that you can't see looking at it from the street. That is because they are in many cases hidden not just by your yard's landscaping, but by layers of dirt as well. Too often these portions of your home — your foundation and basement or crawl space — are out-of-sight, out-of-mind until a problem arises. At Jerry's Waterproofing, however, those areas are our specialty. From foundation repair to basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation to installing egress windows, we can make sure your Omaha, NE, home's basement or foundation are assets to your home rather than troublesome liabilities.
Some people's homes, it seems can weather almost any storm without a drop of water getting into the basement. They are the lucky ones.
All too often the situation is the exact opposite: A house with gutters, downspouts and seemingly good grading and the homeowner still is left crossing their fingers every time they go downstairs after it rains.
It doesn't have to be this way.
At Jerry's Waterproofing, we offer a selection of waterproofing options, both interior and exterior, so we can match the solution to the specific problems your home is facing. Using one, or a combination, we can keep your basement dry.
Our products are made by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leading manufacturer in the foundation repair and basement waterproofing industry.
Foundation repair can also help to keep water out of your home, as it will keep your foundation from sinking into the ground or becoming cracked. The better shape your foundation is in, the better shape the entire home will be in. Common foundation problems include a settling foundation, bowing or leaning basement walls, and foundation cracks. If you see any of these in your home, invest in foundation repair as soon as possible.
If you see signs of a settling foundation, your best option is to let us install helical piers or steel push piers. These support the home from underneath by finding stability in the soils deep underground, beneath the shifting top layers of soil. Once the foundation is stabilized, it can be lifted to its original position. Shifting foundations can be restored to normal by adding helical tiebacks or wall plate anchors, installed underground to pull the foundation into place.
