Basement Restoration
Basement Restoration Before & After

"From all the water seeping in mold had developed on the walls our mortar joints within the fieldstone foundation were crumbling. Done Right did an excellent job in both the treatment of the basement as well as the clean up afterward. The 2010 flooding was the absolute test. NO MORE WATER.

Mortar Repair – An Exclusive Method for Fieldstone Foundation

A house with a stone foundation is not only a beautiful sight, but is also a traditional and strong structure. Antique homes that were built before the 20th century usually have stone foundation walls that add to their antiquity and enhance their nostalgic magnificence.

Do You Have a Stone Foundation?

A stone foundation consists of fieldstones that are put together using mortar. Though it incorporates reliable material and offers strong support to a structure, a stone foundation demands constant care and maintenance. This is important to preserve the structure's strength so that it does not deteriorate with the passage of time.

While living in Massachusetts, it is quite easy to care for your fieldstone foundation. Done Right Services employs the best experts, implements useful methods and utilizes effective products and solutions, and charges reasonable rates.

Causes of Mortar Cracks

The development of cracks and deterioration of the mortar between the stones weakens the entire structure. Following are the major reasons for these cracks:

  • Extreme temperature changes.
  • Water infiltration or water leaks.
  • Direct impact.
  • Age of the mortar
  • Excessive digging outside and around the foundation
  • Shifting of the foundation
  • Lack of preventative maintenance

Ignoring mortar cracks can make the situation even worse as the water and critters can creep into the foundation of your property. Unrepaired cracks not only devalue your property, but also make it an unsafe structure.

Learn About the Process

A stone foundation can be fixed if fieldstones are intact, however complete replacement is critically important in case the stone foundation walls are bulging. Reliable and efficient technicians are well-versed in repair procedures. They know the ins and outs of mortar repair methods and ensure that you enjoy the best results in the form of a clean, dry, flawless, and safe stone foundation.

Since loose fieldstones leave empty spaces behind, a team of expert technicians fill them by inserting mortar. Once the repair process is completed for the interior and exterior parts of your foundation, your hired professionals will recheck all mortar joints and fixed areas. They will also use an exclusive cement based waterproof coating to insure a dry stone foundation.

Hire Experienced Professionals

No other company can come close to the level of experience in stone foundation restoration. Residential, commercial, and industrial structures with fieldstone foundations usually have historical importance. Thus, they require special expertise and risk-free repair procedures.
