Local Sump Pump installation & Repair

Many times, basement or crawlspace flooding problems are solved through the use of a sump pump. A sump pump can be a costly installation. However, it will pale in comparison to the money you spend everytime your basement floods. 

Sump pump installation involves a hole being dug to collect groundwater and a pump that expels the water from your home. This is one of the efficient ways to deal with issues of excess groundwater.

Egress windows must be large enough to allow for an emergency exit - they must be installed when finishing a basement or repairing a foundation without one.

Egress Window & Window Well System Installations

Egress Window Installation

If you’re finishing your basement, or you need major repairs to your foundation, it’s important to install an egress window. Egress windows serve as an emergency exit for any room that is underground (i.e., basement). 

Additionally, most building codes require that finished basements have an egress window for this specific purpose. 

Whether you’re refinishing your basement or need to repair a sinking foundation, contact our staff to find out if you need an egress window.


Window Well Installation

When it comes to basement foundations, window wells are important for holding back the earth and keeping moisture away from that tiny window in your basement. 

If your basement window doesn’t have a window well, you could be a serious risk for flooding problems during the rainy season, especially if your home has drainage issues. 

Contact our staff for more details about window wells and if they’re appropriate for your home.
