Bellevue, NE Foundation Repair, Dry Basement & Crawl Spaces

Groundworks, foundation solutions crafted with pride

Schedule Free Inspection

Your Bellevue, Nebraska home’s foundation, basement, or crawl space should be more than just a damp unusable space, and the climate and the soil type in the area do nothing to help.

Bounded by the Missouri River on the East, the water table in Bellevue ranges from 3 to 10 feet depending on the season. This means the soil around your foundation is often wet, resulting in serious foundation issues. Wet soil around your home is always bad, but given the clay-based soil in Bellevue, it’s especially troublesome.

As a result, moisture damage in both your basement and crawl space is a very prevalent problem in Bellevue, Nebraska.

Located near the geographic center of the United States, Bellevue is located in the east-central part of Nebraska. The area has a highly changing 4 season climate. Summers are hot and sunny, with full sun 75 percent of the time. The hot temperature and frequent sun can cause major droughts in the area. Winters are cold with slightly above average snowfall annually. Spring is often wet, while fall sees an abundance of sunshine, mild days, and cool nights.

    I purchased a home in need of repairs. I looked around at different options to have a basement wall secured. I decided to go with Groundworks because the pricing was fair compared to other companies. Three men arrived, they worked very hard in the blistering cold to make sure the job was done correctly and professionally. Adriel explained in detail about the work being performed. They were on time when they said they would arrive, took great care of the house and did a fantastic job. After my experience with Adriel, I will recommend this company to friends and family. Thank you!!

    Nick Waldron and Mike Wrenn both helped to plan and install an expansion joint in my driveway. Service was exceptional. Nick was very detailed in his explanation and helped me understand the value of the expansion joint installation. Mike arrived on time and got straight to work. He was very professional and efficient. I was very happy with the whole process. Very professional and will recommend.

    We highly recommend Groundworks. Paul Winder was so professional and knowledgeable about what we needed to do to fix the foundation of our home. There were no pushy sales pitches and Paul was very honest and straight forward about what we needed and didn’t need. With the financing they have to offer it’s very affordable and we now have a peace of mind that our home will be solid for many years to come. Thank you Groundworks and Paul Winder.

    I had such a great experience with CLS. Dave, the owner personally came out to the house to give me a quote. I really like that the owner prefers to meet each client to fully understand the situation. The crew came out and was respectful and clean. They did a great job and the price was better than the other quotes I received. I highly recommend CLS.

Bellevue Basement Waterproofing

Rainy days in Bellevue are a common occurrence. With the area receiving 32 inches of rain per year, it is about the national average of 38 inches. However, Bellevue also sees nearly 30 inches of snowfall annually. Combining the rain and eventual snowmelt, Bellevue homeowners are all too familiar with a wet, leaking basement.

You may notice more leaks in the spring, after the snowmelt, and during the summer months when thunderstorms are very common. Although this may be when you see the most leaking issues, it’s certainly not the only time to be concerned. Concrete, both cinderblock and poured, are porous materials. This means they collect and hold water. With the soil in the Bellevue area being clay-based, water is absorbed by both the clay soil, and the porous concrete. This water sits in the materials until more water is added, from rain or snowmelt for example, and a leak occurs. Leaks themselves are worrisome for homeowners, but so is water sitting in your concrete basement walls. This water can lead to efflorescence, white mineral deposits, or mold growth. Although these issues are problematic on their own, they are a great indicator you have a waterproofing issue. If addressed at this stage of the problem, you can save yourself the cost and serious headache from cleaning a flooded basement.

Groundworks waterproofing solutions can protect Bellevue homeowners’ basements with ease. Our drainage system is installed inside the basement, where it sits on top of the footing. Keeping it out of the ‘mud zone,’ which means it won’t clog and maintenance is easy. Our cutting-edge product collects water from both the ground and the wall, directing it to a sump pump or existing drain system. Getting water out and away from your home is key to the health of your foundation.

Our outstanding line-up of sump pumps offers the ultimate peace of mind. In an area like Bellevue, where the weather and soil works against you, having a reliable sump pump you can count on is necessary. Our sump pump system provides homeowners with alerts if a problem arises so you are always aware of what’s going on with your system.

Foundation Repair in Bellevue

The clay content in Bellevue soil is the biggest problem for your foundation. Clay soil is notorious for holding water and causing foundation damage. When water is introduced, the soil gets heavy and expands, this puts pressure, called hydrostatic pressure, on your foundation walls. This pressure can be very detrimental to the health of your home, causing bowed walls, cracks, and structural damage.

Foundation cracks, bowed walls (or walls that tilt in towards the middle of the room) can negatively impact the amount of weight your foundation walls can hold and are signs of foundation problems. If your cracked walls or bowing walls are left untreated for a period of time, your home will settle unevenly causing cracks and gaps upstairs in the home, adding additional cost to repair the problem.

Fortunately, you can count on Groundworks to have the best foundation repair solutions for your Bellevue home. Our SettleStop Wall Anchor System works by using tension between the steel panel installed on your basement and the anchor earth plate that is buried deep in the hard-packed soil beyond your home. This long-lasting solution uses the strong, undisturbed, soil to stabilize your foundation wall and prevent future movement. It can even straighten your basement wall over time. Anchors can be installed with minimal disruption to landscaping and do not take up valuable usable space inside the basement. In fact, if you are looking to finish your basement, finishing can be added directly over the anchor wall plates. Foundation repair solutions come with a written, transferable warranty, making homes repaired by Groundworks very attractive to potential home buyers.

Bellevue Crawl Space Encapsulation

Wild temperature swings and hot, humid summers are a crawl space’s worst nightmare. Since this accurately describes Bellevue’s weather, if your home is located above a crawl space you are probably noticing problem signs like mold, sagging floors, musty smells, and an all-around uncomfortable living area.

Even though it’s unlikely you visit your crawl space often, mold can be a serious concern for your family. That is because the air from your crawl space travels through the home. The stack effect, tells us that air is sucked from the crawl space, into the main living areas, before exiting through the roof and repeated. That means mold in the air in the crawl space travels through your home and can be making people sick. Nearly 50 percent of the air you breathe comes from the crawl space, so if your family has constant cold symptoms, increased allergies, or worsening asthma, the condition of your crawl space may be to blame.

Groundworks’ crawl space repair system involves installing our exclusive drainage products throughout your Bellevue crawl space. Drain pipes are installed and are guaranteed to not clog, so you can rest easy knowing water will flow to the sump pump and then away from your home. In addition to controlling the water entering caused by the weather in the area, a high-quality vapor barrier is also installed on the walls and floor to seal out any water vapor that may seep in. This process is called crawl space encapsulation. All vents are sealed and the area is conditioned using an energy-efficient dehumidifier if needed. Conditioning the air allows for the cleanest air possible both in the crawl space and in the living areas above.

Wild temperature swings and hot, humid summers are a crawl space’s worst nightmare. Since this accurately describes Bellevue’s weather, if your home is located above a crawl space you are probably noticing problem signs like mold, sagging floors, musty smells, and an all-around uncomfortable living area.


Concrete Lifting Bellevue

The concrete slabs around your Bellevue home sees a lot of abuse from the winter’s cold temperatures and snow, and the subsequent warm weather and occasional drought caused by the areas more than 200 days of sunshine. This type of weather creates frequent freeze-thaw cycles, one of concrete’s major enemies. When the temperature drops, moisture under your home’s driveway, sidewalk, or patio slab freezes. As water freezes, it expands, pushing the concrete slab up and weakening the concrete. When the moisture melts, the concrete is no longer supported and drops or sags down. This movement causes concrete to sink. During a drought, normal soil beneath the slab shrinks, even more, allowing the slab to sink further. As this cycle continues, the slab becomes weaker and weaker—causing cracking, pitting, and sinking.

The experts at Groundworks understand the effect the freeze-thaw cycle has on your Bellevue property concrete and uses the revolutionary PolyRenewal™ system to raise existing slabs back to the original position. This cutting-edge concrete repair is a two-part polymer that is injected under the slab. As the foam expands, it gently lifts the slab back to its original position.

The best part of PolyRenewal™ in the Bellevue area is its waterproof property. That means no water can enter between the soil and foam and cause damage from the freeze-thaw cycle. In addition to this very important aspect, PolyRenewal™ has a cure time of about 15 minutes, is extremely strong and installation is non-intrusive to your yard and landscaping.
