Foundation Repair and Basement Waterproofing in Papillion, NE

Groundworks, foundation solutions crafted with pride

CFI and a couple discussing outside of the home.

A continental climate means Papillion, Nebraska, experiences warm summers and cold winters with moderate rainfall mainly concentrated in the warmer months. Although this creates a lovely environment for work and play, the extreme temperatures changes, and condensed rainfall timeline, leaves many wet properties across Papillion.

The climate alone would be enough to cause concern for homeowners with basements and crawl spaces, but combined with the fine sandy loamy soil, your home’s foundation can also be at risk. Sandy loam soil is prone to washout leaving your home and your concrete slabs without the proper support. This causes your home to settle, leading to additional problems like cracked brickwork, sticking doors and windows, and uneven floors.

Since waterproofing, foundation, and concrete repair are all common concerns in the Papillion area, it’s a good thing Groundworks has been restoring homeowner’s foundations for more than 30 years. In that time they have seen it all, nothing surprises these professionals and there is no job too big. We offer free, no-obligation foundation inspections to educate you on your home’s needs. Our solutions come with long-term warranties and financing options are available. Contact Groundworks to schedule your free inspection.

This is theSecond project Groundworks completed on my house . This work was stabilization of two walls and a drainagesystem. I am again, impressed with the company’s overall commitment to quality, which is apparent in everyone from sales, admin and work crew. A special shout out to Ian and Nay who worked incredibly hard on a real problem wall and a narrow excavation area. They were so respectful of my home and I could see they were really taking great care and going above and beyond with their work. I appreciate their patience with all of my questions, their timeliness and the great clean up job they did. Emanuel helped to wrap up today as well.I highly recommend Groundworks!!

Juan Paramo and Jose Guzman did a great job fixing the crack in our foundation and a driveway issue. They were efficient, did not make a mess of the yard and just was a great experience. I was dreading the whole thing but when they left I was surprised how well it all went. Thank you!

The three employees, Emmanuel V., Luis V., and Eh T. who did the work, were friendly, polite, professional, and super diligent workers. Emmanuel even texted me pics of the work progress in the crawl space as they went along. I'm so happy with their work and with the finished product. Warren, the representative who came to my home for the estimate, was very knowledgeable and thoroughly explained what would be done, how, and why. I would definitely recommend Groundworks.

I recently met Zak Kephart, a field inspector, while c,ompleting my consultation. My inspection was professional and assuring. Zak was very knowledgeable and explained things to my satisfaction. I have decided to use Groundworks services and will post another review once the project is completed. I can only hope that the work is as good as Zak is as an inspector.

Groundworks anchored and waterproofed our basement and did a great job. I had them mud jack some concrete slabs that sank that were contributing to water issues, too. The mud jacking (poly) was done by a separate crew. Josh and Jose did a fantastic job.

Foundation Repair in Papillion

It’s the previously mentioned Papillion sandy loam soil that causes the most foundation problems for homes in the area. Although the sandy loam soil drains well, meaning hydrostatic pressure isn’t a common problem, it’s foundation settlement that homeowners need to watch out for. Sandy soil has a tendency to wash out, and with the frequent summer rains that Papillion receives, settlement is definitely a cause for concern.

When the soil around your home washes out, your foundation is left without adequate support to bear the weight of the structure. Without this support, your home sinks until it meets resistance. Of course, the settlement isn’t even, meaning one side sinks lower than the other. This uneven movement causes the symptoms Papillion homeowners notice. Cracked foundation walls, sticking doors and windows, nail pops, tilting chimneys, and gaps around door and window frames are just a couple of signs a foundation problem is occurring.

Long gone are the days when homeowners had to go through the incredible hassle of foundation replacement to solve home settlement. The team at Groundworks offers several foundation pier options. Your inspector will do a full inspection and determine the correct pier for your unique home. All our piers bypass the problematic unstable soil that caused the original problem and transfer the weight of your home to the pier that is driven deep into stable soil. This type of solution insures your home will remain stable for years to come.


Papillion Basement Waterproofing

A flooded, smelly basement is a thorn in the side of many Papillion homeowners. Not only is it a mess to clean up, but it can also put the health of your foundation at risk. Mold, wood rot, and wall cracks are all too common issues for foundations that are not waterproofed. The warm weather summer months in Papillion also bring heavy rain, with three-fourths of the rainfall occurring during this time, if area homeowners don’t have an interior drain system, and usually, a sump pump, they are looking at a lot of clean up and mold growth.

Groundworks offers a clog-free interior drain that eliminates the need for messy exterior excavation and the best line-up of sump pumps available. Depending on your basement, and the amount of time it has been leaking, other products such as AquaStop WallSeal™  or an energy-efficient dehumidifier may be needed. Your Groundworks inspector will review his inspection findings and offer suggestions to keep your basement dry and clean permanently.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Papillion

Similar to basement waterproofing, water in your crawl space is a huge mess and a massive headache. However, many Papillion homeowners never visit their crawl space, and any water there can be there for weeks or months until it is addressed. Especially during the summer months in Papillion, when rainfall is frequent, continuous water in the crawl space means mold, mildew, musty odors, and wood rot.

One of the main problems with water in the crawl space is even after it dries, the water vapor, or humidity, remains. Trapped inside, it adds to the mold and mildew problem, weakening the structural integrity of the supporting wood and putting your home’s foundation at risk.

Crawl space encapsulation is the best solution. Our high-quality 20-mil thick vapor barrier liner is sealed to walls and floors, enveloping the space and shutting it off from the outside world. Thermal insulation can be installed on the walls for additional energy savings, and drainage, like a specifically designed crawl space sump pump, is an excellent option.


Papillion Driveway & Patio Concrete Lifting

If the concrete slabs surrounding your home have sunk and are uneven, don’t panic. Luckily the slab itself is still redeemable, it’s the problematic soil beneath the slab that is no longer reliable. Sandy soil, like the kind most of Papillion deals with, easily washes out. Because of this, not only do you need a solution that will raise sunken slabs, but you also need an option that provides a material that won’t wash out.

SettleStop PolyRenewal™ is a two-part polyurethane foam that is injected under the slab. When the two parts mix, a foam is created that gently expands to fill the void under the slab and then slowly lifts the slab to its original position.

The reason PolyRenewal™ is the perfect choice for homeowners is because of its waterproof formula. This means once the slab has been lifted, the foam won’t wash out as the original soil did and like other older concrete lifting methods would.
