Our Foundation Solutions
At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.
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 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. Eventually, the piers will be able to support the weight of your home and keep it from sinking any further into the earth.
Mold Testing and Removal Services
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Gruetli Laager 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. 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.
