Structural Foundation Repair Contractors
The health of your foundation is incredibly important. We are trusted and proven certified foundation repair contractor who is here to help you with all of your structural problems. With our many years of experience in the business, you can count on us to take care of your home's structure. Regardless of how minor or severe you think the foundation problem is, you still need to get it checked out immediately before it leads to even more damage to your home's structural integrity.
Indications of a Foundation Problem:
- Windows and doors don't open or close as easily as they once did
- Cracks form along window and door frames
- Interior and exterior cracks develop
- Certain areas on the first floor of the home feel un-level
- Noticeable sinking on one or more sides of the home
- Leaning, bowed walls appear in the basement
- Cracks appear in the basement floor
Our Foundation Systems
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
This problem is caused from excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. The soil around your foundation swells up whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on your lawn. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. To take care of this issue, our team will be able to install special wall anchors, braces, and support systems to strengthen the wall and keep it properly supported.
Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including settlement. We will need to figure out the cause of the problem and address it at the source. Also, the crack will need to be filled and sealed so that it doesn't let moisture inside the home.
These cracks typically do not pose a problem for the structural integrity of a home, but they still need to be filled in and sealed to prevent moisture from seeping in through the ground and causing damage.
This problem is also caused from the soil around your home, and it's typically from poorly backfilled earth from the time when your home was being built. To take care of the issue, we will install foundation piers. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. Eventually, the piers will be able to support the weight of your home and keep it from sinking any further into the earth.
Mold Testing Services
Atlantis Waterproofing can provide you with professional mold removal services for your Algood area home. Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who don't understand how dangerous this fungus can be in their homes. It is important to get rid of it ASAP, however, since it can cause many different health problems for your family. Additionally, this dark green or black fungus can make your entire home smell very musty and un-welcoming. This can really take away from the natural charm and appeal of your home.
Causes of Mold Growth
This fungus needs three things to live, which are excessive humidity, water, and organic materials to feed off of. More times than not, these three "ingredients" are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment which aren't waterproofed or sealed. To take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. We will also be sure to clean off surfaces to get rid of the nasty mold that is already growing.
