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. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. 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.
Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including 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.

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. 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). Typically speaking, these three things are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment.
