Basement Waterproofing Professionals
We are an A+ certified basement waterproofing contractor in Hixson with the BBB. It's no surprise that water in your basement will inevitably trigger a lot of damage if left untreated for too long. Water in the basement can cause wooden materials, including support beams and floor joists to warp, rot, and decay. When these materials start to fall apart, so will your home. The moisture can also trigger the growth of mold. Mold is typically dark green or black in color, and it can create a lot of headaches, quite literally, for you and your family. Prevent these issues by calling us at the first sign of moisture.
Different Waterproofing Systems
We have a variety of waterproofing solutions that we can provide for Hixson area homeowners. From installing sump pumps inside of the home, to installing an exterior waterproofing membrane on the outside of the foundation, we guarantee that we will get the moisture problem taken care of at the source so that you never again need to deal with leaks or flooding below your home.
On the inside of your basement, we can install sump pumps with battery backups, dehumidifiers, and drainage systems which will connect to the sumps. We guarantee that you and your family will be 100% satisfied with our waterproofing products, and with their lifetime warranties!
When it comes to taking care of moisture problems from outside of your home, we can install French drains, exterior waterproofing membranes, and we can also take care of poor yard drainage and grading problems which could be causing water to pool up next to your foundation walls or basement windows.

We are trusted and proven certified foundation repair contractor who is here to help you with all of your structural problems. Customers in the area turn to us whenever they need help with structural problems of all types, sizes, and varieties.

Our Foundation Systems
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. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. 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. 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.
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 take care of the issue, we will install foundation piers. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
Mold Testing Services
Atlantis Waterproofing can provide you with professional mold removal services for your Hixson 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. 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). More times than not, these three "ingredients" are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment which aren't waterproofed or sealed. To take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. Our team will also be sure that surfaces are properly cleaned off and bleached so that no mold residue remains.
