Customers in the area turn to us whenever they need help with structural problems of all types, sizes, and varieties.

Warning Signs of a Structural Problem:

  • Windows and doors don't open or close like they should
  • Cracks show up 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
  • Obvious 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.

Bowed Walls

Bowed Walls

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 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.

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. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.

Floor Cracks

Floor Cracks

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.

Sinking Foundation

Foundation Settlement

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

Mold Removal in Heiskell

Atlantis Waterproofing can provide you with professional mold removal services for your Heiskell area home. Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who don't understand how dangerous this fungus can be in their homes. 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. 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. To take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. We will also be sure to clean off surfaces to get rid of the nasty mold that is already growing.
