Throughout the Midwest, residents understand that the climate can present harsh conditions for homes. Saginaw homeowners need to be prepared to keep their home dry throughout the year. Tie rod holes are a common source of leak in homes with cement basements. It is important to know the threats they present and how to address them.
StayDry® Waterproofing allows Saginaw homeowners to enjoy their home with no leaks all year. We understand the importance of protecting your home and repairing existing damage. The issues your home faces from tie rod hole leaks should not be ignored. With that said, here is a look at tie rod holes and how our services keep your home safe and dry.
Cement Basements With Tie Rod Holes
Homes with cement basements are more prone to experience tie rod hole leaks. The reason is that construction of cement made them naturally occur in basements. Cement was held together by wood and steel rods. Once the cement was dry, the steel rods were removed and they left holes known as tie rod holes.
These holes make it very easy for water to leak into your home and cause a lot of damage. Fortunately, it is very easy to recognize tie rod hole leaks in your basement. They leave incredibly unsightly stains on your walls that stretch from the hole to the ground. The holes are typically in rows one foot and five feet above the ground. It is important to note that the damage these holes can cause goes beyond looks.
The Risks of Leaky Basements
Basement flooding is a serious problem for Saginaw residents. Water leaking into your basement can cause a lot of different issues. It can create a lot of water damage to the goods you have stored in your basement. On top of that, it will damage finished basements and ruin the walls and insulation you have installed.
If left untreated, the damage can become more serious and be troublesome for your foundation. Tie rod holes can begin to crack and your basement walls can begin to crumble. As more water enters your home, it can cause the cracks to spread more quickly and eventually compromise the structural integrity of your home. Luckily, there are repair services that can stop the issues.
