This is why you will need the help of a professional, trusted, and experienced foundation repair contractor if you have noticed wall cracks, floor cracks, bowing walls, or foundation settlement. Customers in the area turn to us whenever they need help with structural problems of all types, sizes, and varieties.

Warning Signs of a Structural Problem:
- Windows and doors don't open or close like they should
- Cracks form along window and door frames
- Interior and exterior cracks develop
- Certain spots on the first floor of the home feel like they're sagging
- 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. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation 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 is another common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. To take care of the issue, we will install foundation piers. 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.
Mold Testing and Removal Services
Atlantis Waterproofing can provide you with professional mold removal services for your Birchwood area home. A lot of homeowners don't realize how dangerous this fungus really is. This is something you need to get rid of immediately because it can cause a variety of serious medical problems, including: asthma attacks, skin rashes, eye irritation, allergies, headaches, and more. Also, this fungus has been known to make a home smell very musty and unwelcoming.
Causes of Mold Growth
This fungus needs three things to live, which are excessive humidity, water, and organic materials to feed off of. Typically speaking, these three things are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment. 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.
