Basement Window Installation
Having egress windows installed in your basement gives you the confidence of having a reliable escape route in the event of an emergency. Also called basement sliding escape windows, these units are typically found in below-ground basements.
The Real Seal LLC offers basement window installation services in Tinley Park, Illinois, and its surroundings. Whether you need new windows installed in your newly constructed basement, or require your old egress windows replaced, The Real Seal is the company to call.
If your basement or crawl space needs waterproofing, The Real Seal has a team of experts who can handle both.
For basements, the typical procedure is to:
- Use vapor barriers to seal the walls.
- Install a sump pump to remove any water.
- Install a drain tile system inside or outside to prevent water from entering your basement.
- Repair leaks in egress windows.
In the case of crawl spaces, the steps are similar, except that you can have the space completely sealed, which we call crawl space encapsulation.
Whether it’s poor site conditions, poor compaction, tree roots, or poor drainage that is causing your concrete to settle, it is a serious problem that needs to be addressed at the earliest.
To prevent the problem from getting worse and leading to more serious issues, we at The Real Seal use a technique called polyjacking to relevel concrete. The process involves the following steps:
- Our foundation repair experts will first drill dime-sized holes in the affected concrete.
- They then inject polyurethane foam underneath the slab.
- The foam starts to expand underneath the concrete, raising and releveling it to its original position.
