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 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.
A crack in your foundation could be a warning sign of a larger structural problem, such as settlement. Our team of experts will be able to determine the cause of the crack and get it dealt with so it doesn't cause more problems. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.
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 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.
Mold Removal Professionals
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Concord area homes. 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. 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
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). 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.
