When you have water in your basement, it's going to lead to a lot of problems. All of this moisture can cause wooden materials below the home to rot. When these materials start to fall apart, so will your home. The moisture can also trigger the growth of mold.

Structural Foundation Repair Contractors

Foundation Repar in Karns

The health of your foundation is incredibly important. We are the perfect foundation repair contractor for you if you need help with leaning walls, tilting chimneys, floor cracks, and so on. With our many years of experience in the business, you can count on us to take care of your home's structure. It doesn't matter what you think the problem is on your own, you are going to need to let an expert do the repair work for you.

Indications 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 spots on the first floor of the home feel like they're sagging
  • Noticeable sinking on one or more sides of the home
  • Leaning, bowing walls appear in the basement
  • Cracks appear in the basement floor

Our Foundation Solutions

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. 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 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. 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 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 and Removal Professionals

Mold Testing and Removal in Karns

Our team of professionals can provide you with experienced mold removal services for your Karns area home. Sadly, there are many people who don't fully understand the dangers of having this fungus growing 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

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 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.
