Why Foundation Piering is Critical to Effective Basement Repairs

If you are thinking of renovating your basement to make a guest room, a “man-cave,” a rec room, or some other functional space, you will want to make sure that your new investment is protected from leaks and other compromises to your foundation.  Foundation piering will prevent costly damage occurring to your new space.  But in a more basic way, foundation piering will guard against damage to the foundation itself, which could create a major expense down the road.  If you have noticed dampness or a musty smell in your basement, it could be an indicator of future problems.  Tom’s Basement Waterproofing is happy to determine the potential for or current extent of damage and offer our recommendations about how best to repair your foundation.
