Our Foundation Systems
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. 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. Ultimately, it will cause them to bend or bow into the basement environment. To fix the problem, we can install wall anchors, wall braces, and wall supports to provide the extra strength needed to keep the walls in place and stable.
A crack in your foundation could be a warning sign of a larger structural problem, such as 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 fix the problem, we can install foundation piers next to the damaged wall(s). Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.

Also, this fungus has been known to make a home smell very musty and unwelcoming.
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 take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. Our team will also be sure that surfaces are properly cleaned off and bleached so that no mold residue remains.
