Our Foundation Systems

At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.

Bowed Walls

Bowed Walls

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 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.

Wall Cracks

Wall Cracks

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.

Floor Cracks

Floor Cracks

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.

Sinking Foundation

Foundation Settlement

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). 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 Remediation Services

Mold Remediation in Dixon Springs

When it comes to mold removal in Dixon Springs, we have you covered. Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who don't understand how dangerous this fungus can be in their homes. It is important to get rid of it ASAP, however, since it can cause many different health problems for your family. What's more is that this fungus can make your entire home smell very musty, similar to dirty gym socks.

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. Our team will also be sure that surfaces are properly cleaned off and bleached so that no mold residue remains.
