Our Foundation Solutions

At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.

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. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation 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.

Wall Cracks

Wall Cracks

Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including 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. 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 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 Testing Professionals

Mold Testing in Madison

We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Madison area homes. Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who don't understand how dangerous this fungus can be 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

This fungus needs three things to live, which are excessive humidity, water, and organic materials to feed off of. 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.
