Our Foundation Solutions
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
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. 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.
Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including 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 Professionals
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Jasper area homes. Sadly, there are many people who don't fully understand the dangers of having this fungus growing in their homes. It is important to get rid of it ASAP, however, since it can cause many different health problems for your family. 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. Our team will also be sure that surfaces are properly cleaned off and bleached so that no mold residue remains.
