Indications of a Structural Problem:

- Cracks form along window and door frames
- Interior and exterior cracks show up
- Certain areas 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. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. 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 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. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.
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.
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. The piers will be installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. Eventually, the piers will be able to support the weight of your home and keep it from sinking any further into the earth.
Mold Removal Services
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Buffalo Valley area homes. A lot of homeowners don't realize how dangerous this fungus really is. It is important to get rid of it ASAP, however, since it can cause many different health problems for your family. 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. 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.
