Our Foundation Systems

When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.

Bowed Walls

Bowed Walls

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.

Wall Cracks

Wall Cracks

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.

Floor Cracks

Floor Cracks

Typically speaking, a floor crack doesn't indicate that there is a bigger foundation issue at hand. However, it will still need to be filled in to prevent seepage up and through the floor due to a rising and falling water table around your foundation.

Sinking Foundation

Foundation Settlement

This is another common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. To fix the problem, we can install foundation piers next to the damaged wall(s). The piers will be installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.

However, it can cause a wide variety of serious health problems. including: headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, allergies, asthma attacks, coughing, sneezing, eye irritation, and other unwanted medical conditions. What's more is that this fungus can make your entire home smell very musty, similar to dirty gym socks.

Causes of Mold Growth

When it comes to the growth and survival of this fungus, it is going to need only three things to live, which are water, organic materials to feed off of, and excessive humidity (moisture in the air). More times than not, these three "ingredients" are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment which aren't waterproofed or sealed. To make sure that the problem doesn't happen again, we can install our waterproofing and encapsulation systems to make sure there can't be any moisture or humidity. We will also be sure to clean off surfaces to get rid of the nasty mold that is already growing.
