Evanston, Illinois Foundation Repair – Services Offered
From basement waterproofing and basement window installation to crawl space repair, polyjacking, and more, The Real Seal offers a wide array of foundation services in Evanston, Illinois to deal with your foundation-related problems.
If your sidewalk, patio, driveway, porch, garage floor, or any other concrete surface seems uneven, you need concrete leveling service from The Real Seal. Water from rain and gutters, poor site condition, poor drainage, etc. are some of the reasons behind uneven concrete. These factors create voids underneath your concrete slabs, causing them to settle.
At The Real Seal, we use a technique called polyjacking to relevel your concrete floors. This cost-effective solution involves drilling dime-sized holes in the affected slabs and injecting polyurethane foam underneath them, thereby allowing the foam to expand and raise the concrete slabs back to their original position.
Foundation Wall Plate Anchor Installation
Wall plates are commonly installed to stop the inward movement of basement walls. These steel plates are extremely sturdy and work excellently well for bowing walls. While there are many other techniques that can be used for the same problem, installing wall plate anchors is the most efficient.
As the name suggests, foundation waterproofing is the method of preventing water from entering your basement from outside. At The Real Seal, we offer waterproofing solutions for both basements and crawl space foundations.
When it comes to basements, our foundation experts would seal the walls with moisture barriers, install a sump pump to remove water, prevent water from entering the area by installing interior or exterior drain tile, and repair leaking windows if any.
The process is the same for crawl spaces as well, except that you can have your crawl space completely sealed as well, with our crawl space encapsulation service.
