The tie rods are used for framing the foundation during construction. A common waterproofing issue we find is when these deteriorate over time, they create holes in the walls that allow water to seep into. While it seems like it could be a big problem, it is one we often encounter and are experts at repairing.
To take care of the problem, the professionals at Don Kennedy and Sons can make use of an epoxy material to fill in and seal the holes so that moisture will never be able to leak into the basement of your home. This is great news if you are planning on finishing the basement - or even if you aren't planning to - so that you can have a safe, healthy, and dry space.
